I live in desert thus no rust. The car has been sitting outside covered. It needs a new top and a paint job with minor body work. The interior just needs some tender loving care and the stereo needs to be replace (stolen). I think the big with the car not running started with the electrical system. After the last time I had the tuned up if it sat for a day or two I
needed to have it charged. Then I was home caring a parent and the car
was left sitting and ignored for two years.
