    Nice story about the Plymouth. My parents had a light blue 58 Plymouth Plaza two door, even lowlier than a Savoy. In 1961 photos you can see the rust streaks on the front fenders. Dad said it was the worst car he ever owned, they replaced it with a 1960 Pontiac which is the first car I remember.

      It’s remarkable now how little cars rust, and how reliable they are.

    Thanks Jim, glad folks enjoyed it; my dad more than once complained about how his cars would rust out within a couple of years of buying them brand new, which is why they only had a six month warranty, that wouldn’t go over too well now days!!

      I remember the rust days. We had a ’74 AMC that was a championship ruster. By ’78 there were gaping holes in the body. Dad welded in sheet metal and we sanded the whole car smooth and he had it repainted. In three years there were holes again.
