Figured we need one of these. Probably won’t be a popular thread for euros, but at least here in the rust belt, rusty cars and lack of rust protection and repair mean cars rot away.

like this!

The way those arches rot out is fascinating to me. Reminds me of this old video (headphone warning - loud):


The sills/rockers too, wow they just don't seem to use any rust protection at all. I find those videos really satisfying though, it's like picking scabs.

If you tried to take one of these in for inspection in Finland, they'd probably send the car to the crusher and lock you up.

This one scared me a bit, because I saw when he went over bumps the whole truck wiggle like a worm. The front end moved separately from the cab, which moved separately from the bed.

this one may not be too bad, however seeing just the bottom is being as crusty as it is, suggest there’s probably more problems lurking beneath.
