    Additionally a fair number of cars are near the Pacific ocean. The persistent salt laden-ed fog is quite corrosive. All the times I've raced 60 miles up to coastal Santa Barbara, wishing..., hoping..., only to find cars that were "returning to the sea." It may not be as bad as it is in the "rust belt," but it often isn't as good as many people think.

    I know what you mean about cars from by the beach: I remember seeing a bunch of late 1960's vehicles ca. 1979 in Daly City, outside of SF and the rust on them was weird. The 'grilles' just in front of the windshield wipers were flat rotted away much like a Meth head's teeth but the undercarriages were actually pretty decent.

    Note I'm a Wash DC native and vehicles were all but destroyed by their 5th birthday in the 1970's so; overall, Calif vehicles were creampuffs by comparison-----------to the point mentioning 'California car' in a 'For Sale' ad upped the value by 50% off the bat.

    I agree but; the odds are much greater that a car looking like that Hawk is indeed a Calif native judging by the 'patina'.

    Coming from a Rust Belt refugee (Wash DC native); I agree with both of you about that Hawk would be a builder and maybe use a rusted out Hawk as a parts donor.
