I like the art under the hood, and that shifter head is great.

But isn’t the rust a longterm concern?

Awesome car man. I am a big fan of the ratty look and ive wanted a 510 for as long as i could remember.


On the rust, around the NW rust is a very slow process, so it’s not really a concern. If it was in the floorboards it would probably be cut out but on the side panels it’s just patina.
