Re: [DMCForum] ATTN: Bob Brandys (Re: AMC)

I remember up here in Wisconsin how AMC's would rust out like no  
Tomorrow. the holes they drilled in to add rustproofing eventually  
held in water and accelerated the rust process because they would  
rust out around the drill holes.

Maybe down south where you live they held up but up here with the  
road salt they rusted just as bad as any other car.

The funniest part is I see every old car from the 70's and 80's  
driving on the road, if I want to see an AMC from that era I have to  
go to a car show because the rest are all rusted to shit!

Now that is some Bullshit about AMC not rusting!
