Holy Christmas! You win. Get a gallon or two of naval jelly on that Bonne quick before it disappears.

My first Bonnie, a 1987 had rust worse than that.

It was DISGUSTING, but good enough to perk my interest in Bonnies!

The hood was so rusted that the support frame welds rusted from the sheet metal. I had to rig it with lag bolts. The windshield and all four windows leaked like a siv. I finally junked it at 260,000 miles.

You won, NO question about that. Badnit may have some rusty areas, but yours clearly takes the cake. At least it kind of blends in with the gold paint. Plus it probably stays nice and cool in the summer. lol

Jeeze, thought I had a shot at this one, but I bow down to my rusty superior.

Well, should we go for the silver medal at least?
