That is what the old-timers did/do on the Outer Banks of NC. It will not stop all rust but it sure does help preserve the vehicle.


Only in America do you have the God given right to be loudly opinionated about something that you are completly ignorant of.

Buy a winter beater!
Back in the 70s and 80s in Buffalo, NY we would see a new car start to rust during the 1st winter. The older vehicles did not have the Galvy parts and they have many places that the snow and salt residue will lay in. It does not take long for rust to take hold.

I'll echo using Internal Frame Paint and a quality coating on the outside. A good rubberized undercoating W/ upkeep will help too. Or you could give everything underneath a good cleaning, then spray boiled linseed oil on everything (not in your driveway and not your exhaust) and let it dry for a couple days.
