    Too much rust?

    I've been looking for a 100 series for a while and came across a low mileage (~95k) 2006 LX470. It's from up North (Montana), so I figured there would be some rust. I'm from the Southwest, so I have zero experience with the stuff. Can someone take a look at these photos and let me know?
