Being from the Midwest, I never considered that, road salt from winter road work will do the same.

My car came from Michigan via Boston, sold new in Boston and lived there for 4 years then to Michigan until 4 years ago. I was told it was never driven in bad weather and after seeing some of the cars in need of restoration, I'm a believer.

I had the turbo rebuilt right after I purchased the car, I did the R&R and the exhaust bolts had some rust on them, that's it. Had it on a lift the day I picked it up and it has no rust any where else.

No PPI, A knowledgeable friend here in my home town handled the transaction and transportation aspect on my behalf.

Now, I feel like I walked through a field of cow pies and came out carrying roses.

I got so lucky, twice actually. I got mine right before prices went skyward.
