Here in AZ... Its the plastic that always rots first...
the dry south western states are the best for non-rusted out body panels and such an the cars on the eastern coast states are better for their interior components.

i have had cars with T-tops and sunroofs that didn't leak or were musty or moldy smelling and i have had them that did. factory installed T-tops and sunroofs are better than the aftermarket versions in my opinion and they should be garaged as well. and some cars, like Trans Ams and Camaros just look good with T-tops!

I saw one of these today! It was the same color but decked out with the Subaru racing decals.

Oh yeah, those 80s Chevys were bad. If the rust didn't get 'em, plain engineering did. Where did those guys get their degrees? And who bought all that steel that would disappear every time a drop of water touched it?
No wonder Toyletta went to the top. Yeah they rusted too but the engines kept going.

one big car i owned years ago, that i realy liked for it's ride was 1973 Chevrolet Impala two door sedan. pale yellow with a black vinyl roof. had a 400 small block with a 4 barrel carb, dual exhaust and an automatic transmission. did a little custom work to the engine, like an aluminum intake and a Holley carb, Accel electronic ignition, put a set of headers on it with some turbo mufflers. lowered it about 2" all around, put on some better shocks and then installed some lower profile 70's on the factory steel rims. that car rode like a Cadillac on the highways and the freeways! cruising at 85 mph was almost boring it rode so nice.

i had that one for a little over two years before my wife at the time decided to tangle with another car and because the car was so old the insurance company was going to total her. they wanted to give me $200 and take the car for salvage. i ended up settling for $1000 and i kept the car. i ended up buying a 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo from the guy i worked for and ended putting the engine out of the Impala into it. then traded the Impala to one of the guys at work for his 1975 Pontiac Grand Prix that needed an engine. i had an old 1973 Catalina that was wrecked pretty bad on the drivers side but had a really decent running engine that i ended up putting into the Grand Prix.

so out of the wrecked Impala i ened up with two nice cars with some sweat equity!
