Re: [DML] Driving DMC on salted roads



Sorry about the confusion..but by "we" I meant the true car guys that value what they own..yes everyone else drives their cars to the ground..or drives newer POS..that they either lease or trade in every few years, so that they do not have to worry about rust-outs..not me that is WHY I still own cars I bought back in the mid 1970's and 1980's..and I do have a winter beater.

BTW..It's not about the harsher climate/weather..but about the chemicals on our highways/streets that are used that rust out the cars..and Connecticut is a cheapo state..and they use the harshest stuff you can Imagine...

Bric

and still looks as good as when I bought it.
