Yup, it sucks when the mustache freezes up. Even worse, when it starts to thaw out again.

A rust-proofing compound applied to the underside of the car. I used driveway sealer on my old truck. Not pretty, but easy and cheap.

**NOTE** I am not recommending this for a Bonne or any other car where appearance is an issue. This was a FUgly old work truck...

My old Celebrity was sweet in the winter. That thing was great in the snow. 10 times better than my mom'* T-bird with brand new tires.

My best friend has a 2000 GTP, and drives his '89 Celebrity to work. Those things run $h1++y, but do keep running!! His has almost 200,000 miles on it! Of course, you could get an older Bonne!!
