Just did a Roadtrip to Elkhart IN to see how the other side lives and try to get a good deal on some Fraudulently obtained toys.Elkhart Auction collection
Note all prices mentioned are after the buyers premium has been added to the closing bid.
Managed to overpay for a couple items and got a 20 foot trailer for a reasonable (but not smoking) deal. Still kicking myself for not continuing to bid on1952 Hudson Hornet
. Wasn't sure (and as of this morning still don't know) if it was a good buy or not, but got scared off when there was only one other bidder than myself for this car that is very similar to what my dad drove when he was in high school all those years ago. Not sure it would have fit in the trailer we ended up buying for the road trip home.
Anyway I digress.
While driving through the area I noticed how much rust (and rust through) your cars get in the Rocker panels and lower fenders I've heard the horror story's and know that collectors and rebuilders love West coast cars, but actually seeing the destruction of 6 year old cars was eye opening.
How do y'all deal with that, or prevent it? My 29 YO stepside did spend two winters in West Virginia, and is showing some rust bubbles on the lower fenders behind the doors, but nothing near as bad as what I saw on cars 1/4th it's age.
