Some might argue that treasure hunting is a thing of the past. That, we’ve discovered, plotted, surveyed, and satellite mapped all there is to discover on this planet. But in reality, treasure hunting comes in all sorts of different forms, consider American Pickers on History Channel, aren’t they searching for treasure? And with the rise in popularity of shows like The Curse of Oak Island, Skinwalker Ranch and Lost Gold of World War II it would seem that treasure hunting is still alive and well.
But there is another facet of searching that’s especially intriguing (to me) and has been brought to the surface as recently as last year. Take for instance, the discovery of Ernest Shackleton’s lost vessel The Endurance.
You’re probably wondering what all this has to do with cars? As we reported on Drive Thru Episode #20 (in March of 2022); there was a shipwreck containing millions of dollars of high end vehicles like Porsches, Lamborghinis, Bugattis and more. But this isn’t the first time vehicles have been lost at sea. Author and explorer Larry Jorgensen joins us tonight to talk about a little known shipwreck that cost Detroit hundreds of vehicles!
