I have a particular screw loose that makes me love junky, rusty, scrappy old cars. Beaters. Most neighborhoods, however, do not.
Neighbors and neighborhood groups tend to complain about things like 'property values' and that the local children got 'Tetanus' from your 'rusty' fenders. This is all bullcrap. Old cars rule, like that Rolls-Royceamino we saw today. Reader NoSubs figured he knew the backstory for the car.
