Cars do not rust here on the West coast, as they do in the east. Here in
Portland, no salt is ever used, the summer air is very dry, and the
temperatures moderate. Back east, the salt eats old cars. I am constantly
amazed here at the condition of 50s-80s vehicles, many of which have faded
paint, but no rust.
