So, I have spent the last two weekends with my 80 -- last weekend, draining and filling the gas-tank -- and making the mistake of not reading IN-Ft lbs in the FSM on the gas tank plug -- thanks for a new one, C'an! There as a ton of silt in the bottom of the tank, though no visible water -- I poured the old gas in my Civic and got new ga for my 80... This past weekend, my parents were in town and we took my 80 up to Hartford to a dog show, with my two pit bulls in the way back, in their crates -- see below -- everyone had a great ride -- -- and Sunday, I spent the day sort of winterizing my 80 -- cleaning up the inside, using Leatherique on the seats, and washing and waxing the exterior -- Yesterday, I got a magazine (called Carcovers, unimaginatively) that had some sort of odd zip-up baggie for your car's storage -- like a zip-up taco. You drive on the bottom of it, and then zip the top up around it -- it looked odd, and very anal -- but they said it help stop rust -- ?? My question is, what really causes rust? I know it usually comes from the inside out, and salt and crap can add to it, but has anyone ever seen rust occur from just plain age (up North) where the air's more moist than in the South? Especially if the car's been garaged and not driven winters? The only reason I care about this is that my 80 WILL drive forever -- that is, if I don't get rear-ended by some socialite soccer-mom gabbing on her cell-phone -- !!
