my friend and i still haven't had a discussion about the rusty swift. i spent an hour poking around this afternoon, pulling the front carpet up, pulling loose rust off.

i can say this: good thing this car didn't have a stronger engine, or it would have pulled its own front end right off! okay, maybe not, but it's pretty bad.

at least now with the extent of the rust fully exposed, we can make a better informed decision.
