Talking about road salt and rust makes it sound like you are in a northern climate with seasonal change. Down here in the south there's a pretty good amount of 25 year or even older cars on the road. Not just Panthers, but you'll also see Park Avenue/LeSabre (or anything with GM's 3800 series 1,) Suburban/Tahoe, Expedition/F150. And of course for import fans, the Camry and Accord. All the brands that were and still are known for reliability. Take care of them, they'll take care of you.

Many you live in an affluent area where people buy new cars constantly like we buy new pairs of socks. The reality is many of the non specialty older sedans do in fact exist. They do not need recycled any more than late models (foreign and domestic) that get in accidents and are considered easily totaled today. Even with what appears at times as modest damage. It did not appear as tongue in cheek as you thought. Many took exception to the comments as it’s untrue. These cars were well made and many are still on the road.

Very well said. I like older cars myself, but there comes a point when it's time to move on.
