• The problem with East Coast cars, specifically those from the northeast is that nobody wants them. Most (flame suit on) are rust buckets from the beltline down. Plus, we're all enthusiasts here. We all work on our cars (mostly out of financial necessity). When posed with the choice between a $4000 car with every single screw and bolt head rusted to the hilt underneath, and a $6000 car without rust, this broke enthusiast would gladly spend the extra $2k for a south-of-the-rust-belt auto.

    • As a Canadian east coast resident I have to say; why waste your cash on any spray lube when none of it is effective and youll just end up burning it up when you are forced to break out the oxy-accetaline to apply heat to almost any nut or bolt on anything more than five years old. The only exceptions are cars that are absolutly soaked in greazze and graphite. Then youll need a shower after eoing anything under the car.

  • The lack of rust can exist on East Coast cars. This car sold – and this one was garage kept and transported to FL every winter, the PO never drove in adverse weather. It was a true "little old lady" car. I have a '93 Miata that has >130k and the paint marks on suspension nuts are still clearly visible, no sign of rust. Never saw road salt. You can find cars in the East that are clean, but they are fewer and farther between then the West, for sure. Thanks 'Turismo!
