    Spose they ran a tire chain with a busted cross link for about 40 miles? At 60 mph?

    Looks like a lot of rust around the edges.

    That’s normal for a car from the rust belt. I bought an ’02 Z71 Chevy last year for $400, it ran fine but every body panel except the roof was rusted through and the frame had several spots where it was as thin as tissue paper.

      I remember a buddy once bought an old VW and asked me to come for a long visit and help him fix it up. Car looked in nice condition, but up close we discovered that the entire body was simply rust held together by paint. The engine and frame were good but almost all of the body panels were shot. Undeterred, we rebuilt that entire car out of sheet metal. It wasn’t pretty, but it ran for years until he was able to replace it.

      No, he never painted it. He drove it around looking like sheet metal.

    We looked at a car like that. I had my heart set on it until we discovered that.

    That is some serious rust. I would bet the car is not safe to be on the road.

    Looks like a used VW Rabbit I had in Chicagoland, actually it looks ilke how both of the used Rabbits I bought ended up.

    Is that his shock mount sticking up there?

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
