LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - Investigators still cannot figure out why a classic Model "T" Ford car was found a month-and-a-half ago in the Mississippi River. 

The "Tin Lizzie" was discovered October 9th during a sonar scanning demonstration for Winona County Minnesota, northwest of La Crosse. 

Chief sheriff's deputy Ron Ganrude said at least half the car remains buried on the sandy bottom of the river, about 20 feet underwater and over 150 feet from the Winona shore.

The scanner is owned by Keith Cormican of Black River Falls. He said he couldn't tell if there was anyone in the car, because the passenger compartment is buried in the sand.
