Oh yeah I forgot about y'all salt issue. We don't have that here. That truck is still in good shape, I wouldn't want to drive it everyday, it's loud as f*** in the cab and it rattles a lot. LOL. Works for a spare though

I had the same issue with a little Toyota Corolla that I had for over 20 years. That car was great, I loved it for driving around looking at jobs etc. etc. however the Rust killed it. The sad part is the motor and transmission were strong as a bull even with 275,000 miles on it.

All the brake lines, fuel lines, exhaust, rockers, everything was loaded with rust

I had to throw in the towel

Seems incredibly strange to me, we have probably the most corrosive environment in the country (except Hawaii) but our vehicles exhibit almost zero rust. A galvanized screw here on the beach... 3 years max before it's compromised. Up North those boy have them last forever.

Boats some of these fellas bring down from up North we always get a chuckle out of. Theyre wood and they say something like "it was fine in Rhode Island and that is all salt water" and within a couple years the boat has gone to ****.

I mean, metal and wood in Florida on our coast has a really rough go of it except vehicles. So I have to ask, why is it that vehicles rust so much faster up north but things like exterior fasteners are so much slower to corrode?

If you tried to do aluminum siding anywhere within the Gulf breeze it'd be pitted and ruined within 5 years. 305 stainless goes to **** quickly on the beach so you have to use 316. I am always left puzzled by this where people are inland and have rusted out rocker panels but it's pretty rare here in a vehicle even 25 years old...

They apply know corrosives to our roads, all of them, for 4 months out of the year. It gets in the puddles and snow and clings to our cars and gets up into everything, every nook and cranny.

If you aren't near Florida's waters it's not as bad. If you are on the roads in the NE it's everywhere and inescapable.

Florida is pretty bad everywhere but nothing like your guys' vehicle rust.

Makes sense that the salt slush makes it that much worse. It's like our salt water environment except exactly under your vehicle.

One good thing is you can take a truck from up here that's headed for the crushed due to rust, and sticker it down there. Nobody cares about the rust.

Should have seen the guys changing the wiper blades. Two were trying to figure out what the heck they were. A third guy shows up and tells them those are winter blades, they use them up north.

We have a salt water environment and I have never once had a concern about any of my vehicles corroding. And I've owned a lot of vehicles throughout the years. Lived in Carlsbad By the Sea for many years as well. It just doesn't even come up in a conversation.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


Standard practice here in SE Michigan was to take a rusted up, but highly desirable pickup, bondo the living **** out of it , make it smell and sparkle purty, and then load a bunch up on a car hauler and head south.
Return trip, same hauler was loaded with high mileage but rust free rides. When we got them, Job One was to roll back the speedo and put new front rugs in, new rubber on the brake and throttle, and hand wrap leather on the steering wheels when needed.

That's how I made department head at Rademacher Chevy at the tender age of 20, and a member of his 2 percent club. I literally kept rolls of carpet, cases of matching rattle can paint, knew every detailing trick in the book, had a place name Duke's Speedo Shop in Pontiac that could roll back odometers without a trace. Not only was I doing in house, I had dealers from Bloomfield Hills and Grosse Pointe sending rides to me.

Had a good old boy who also was youngster, that would run some of these trips for me, and he could round up pickup boxes and clean quarters and front clips like nobody's business.

He went on to specialize in finding factory muscle cars and today his business is on it's 2nd generation. It's called Southern Motors.

PS: How fast cars rusted up here dramatically accelerated on models made after WWII.

I don't have any anything against it's red bellied worm eating ways.

However, for the last week we've had a young Robin attacking it's reflection in our house windows all day long.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


Need a "Things that are irritating as ****" thread.

To which I would add is that Gabi Insurance commercial - the one where the guy with the **** ed german accent is talking.


almost a dead ringer for that Joe Han Krous **** on Hellboy, the voice done by Seth McFarlane.

Almost gut reaction on my part to want to clobber the guy.

Jerkoff across the street had two boxers that only got walked for a few min per day to pee and take a dump in the street ( sorry to gross some of you out ) Haven’t seen either boxer in a few months.

They were probably a few years younger than Hunter. Now I see him walking a tiny puppy for a few min per day like the others. Some people shouldn’t have animals if they’re only gonna walk them 15’ a few times a day.

I agree. So many bad pet owners. I've adopted my girlfriend's sisters beagle recently because she was the same way, couldn't be bothered to give him the care and exercise he needed. In the middle of an uphill battle to reteach him manners.
