    Alabama Humidity and Rust

    JWZ28,

    I think of salt when I think of rusted automobiles. I have never thought about a humid climate causing a car to rust but you may be correct.

    Yeah any moisture is bad for old cars, especially if the tires are flat and the body is sitting on dirt.

    Is that the merc equivalent to the pinto?

    Wouldn't make a bad drag car, light with a 302.

    Yea as much as I love the camaros and stangs I just wanted to do something different. So I went vega this time lol.

    I had a beautiful vega! 30000 miles. I loved it except for not being able to hook. I bought a 78 Monza spider for $75 and still to this day kick myself for stripping it. I know same car but the Monza was cool as hell.

    I like those cars. I like things that are dorky and a little out of the ordinary.
