how do a stainless steel muffler, and aluminum control arms rust?
stainless steel does rust
..once its protective film is worn or gone, which doesnt take too long.
dont know much about aluminum.but i believe anything with metals rusts.
wish i would have had a camera, didnt know it was odd
that was the first thing i checked for was rust-
it had spots all over the bottom of the car.. clearly on the parts i mentioned.
including exhaust pipes, brake lines etc..seemed regular to me.
If the car-salesman wasnt so skethcy i would have filled out the papers there and then,
but dont know he didnt convince me to be a professional, but either way i wanted it bad.
im still looking for another.
goodluck with your purchase 1998 Bonneville SE.
EDIT: this is what i might get now. hes only asking for 3,000$ and its the only owner selling it.. hes an older gentleman. the car has a bit over 200,000km- im going to take it to a shop to get it inspected. '86 z28.. i believe its the 350 quad4 or the 305..sorry
