    Wow, someone fixed it up? Must have a salvage title now, but at least it was rescued!! Did it migrate north to Canada from Kentucky?

    Yes it is on the west side of Toronto in the yard of a body shop. The owner of the shop said he drove it for awhile after repairing it but as per usual you can never really trust what these guys say. He also did mention that he replaced the rear quarter, had to pull & repair the rail that runs beside the battery a bit but didn't have to touch the trunk lid. I have a feeling there is a bit more to it & I will have to find out if it has a Salvage title, something he may have forgot to mention. When I initially looked at it i could see that it would likely need a major clean up, an upper harness, future headliner repair, blower motor did not make a sound, fogs didn't seem to work & the roof catches when trying to put in vent position but slides back OK.Positives is that it has original radio, with working antenna. 10 disc Sony changer in trunk, not sure if it was working. All gauges working no dash light on, motor sounded good and it started right up & although I could not drive it at that time, it went into D & R without any hesitation, no exhaust leaks & at least a new muffler/resonator on it. I looking at it for a friend and if it is repaired properly & it drives straight I will take a closer look at it.

    What a careless idiot left car sitting outside for the whole winter !!!!

    I ve never left my car sitting outside more than 4 hours in summer evening time !

    Car looks like to be in a poor condition. Wrong hood with the amber corner lights look ugly. In addition , lights appear to be regular W124 facelift.

    Pretty sure it is different case. But yes you are careless if you let your to be outside under the snow (unless it was under restoration). Not an idiot for sure cuz I saw what you did with your car .

    I hope you will not argue that it is OK/right/fine to keep car outside under the snow .

    Keeping the car outside doesn't mean the owner don't care for it. I have seen several "rust eaten" cars which has been thoroughly kept in a garage all year around - but they were never cleaned properly... A heated garage is even worse making perfect conditions for corrosion development. Of course it is better to keep the car garaged, but in the end it all depends on how the car is maintained entirely.
