Wow, the owners of these cars just know how to drive and that's it. These vehicles are slowly decaying because of poor maintenance.

I know a family that has one of that generation of Cavalier. They drove it until the rear suspension rotted completely away. Otherwise, they'd probably still be driving it.

Oddly, it also had the word "rapist" scratched into the driver's door. They painted over it, but didn't sand it out. Which means it was still very visible.

Not that much of a rust bucket, more of a beater. These Chevrolets were never officially sold here, so someone went trough the trouble of importing one from the US.

Hell, that is a good candidate for restoration.

The swastikas are an.... Interesting touch.

Would that dirt include road salt in Norway? Seems incredibly brave (or stupid) leaving a fairly clean old Chevy covered in that crap.

This time of year, about 50 % of that dirt will be road salt, so yes...

I thought I could hear something, that'll be it rusting. I'm never sure which countries/areas of countries bother with salt and which just say screw it and leave it to people to have suitable tyres. :p
