Rust Grade

My method of grade for buying used cars on basis of rust.

Easy, takes only a minute. I have been in the deep rust belt for 32 years and had a variety of used cars.

One pic is a grade of A- and it is in my drive. 10 years old this month.
One pic I give a D and it is in my drive. 11 years old in Jan.

Both used cars buy. First one last Nov, second 8 years ago.

Sellers do not try to cover this up. No need to open the door and look for that rust at the bottom of the door.
