Three years in Chicago would do it to an old car. I've been here a couple years, and have never, ever seen the lengths that these municipalities go to hose down the roads with salt.

I've seen cars rust before my eyes.

People love rust back here. They leave it like open sores, almost war-scar like on all their vehicles. I probably see 10-20 cars with the rockers gone. If they had real vehicle inspection around here like they do in Pennsylvania (or Germany) - 85% would fail. This is the worst I have ever seen. And this is coming from a guy that grew up back east. I have never seen the equal. The greater Chicagoland area and Wisconsin takes salt use to a whole new level. I'm tempted to drive an old Saturn around here with plastic panels to fight it off.
