Sandy leads to Thanksgiving rental car shortage - Article Photos 2/2

FILE- In this Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012, file photo, a man passes walks by a piece of the Rockaways boardwalk that was washed into Beach 91st Street, alongside a small car that was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy earlier in the week, in the Rockaways neighborhood in New York. Thanksgiving travelers who have yet to rent a car in the Northeast are out of luck: Superstorm Sandy has created a shortage. The storm damaged thousands of cars, including those owned by the rental companies. The loss of vehicles was compounded by rising demand. Thanksgiving and Christmas are normally busy rental periods. And lingering mass transit problems caused by Sandy have added to demand. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens, File)
