The term "sheet metal" is a bit scary for us in the rust belt. Sheet metal eventually rusts. Even galvanized only last a few years. And the designs always end up with pockets that catch salt water and dirt. Still, the vehicles are better then the old days as far as rust. The cost of repairs makes a vehicle obsolete before the rust takes over now.

There's a Model T there just restored by Ford. And don't forget the models. No classic sleds allowed there. You;re stuck with what you got.
