Re: [T3] Snow in PDX

When I was in high school, driving my Bondo'd up 73 Square, one of the
teachers drove a 68 Square with Oregon plates on it... it was his WINTER
car!  I wanted to strangle him.... that car was all faded and scratched up
but not a single spot of rust on it!  I was so impressed that even the wheel
wells were nicely painted and rust-free.  I dont know what ever happened to
it, but the worst part of the whole this is that he was using it to save his
MGB from the salt.
