Default Ashes to ashes, rust to rust

How much rust is too much?

I love this 60. It is frequently parked not far from my house. There isn't a dent on it, just an advanced case of oxidation.

Wow. Almost has developed her own "camo" pattern!

Can you tell what the mileage is?

When you or your stuff gets wet, then you have a rust problem. Short of that it's aesthetics.

This thread is funny. My sister and her husband in Rhode Island had one that their kids called "The Cheese" cause it leaked and had cultures growing. You could also see the highway through the floor, and not just a small hole either. Her husbands said as long as it started, they weren't getting rid of it. Finally rolled it.

The upper hatch/tailgate is looking sweet, however!
