    It’s amazing how much shit falls out of an old car once you hit it with a rattle gun. The 55 Chevy I worked on recently came out of New Mexico. Every time I touched that thing it seemed like there was another couple of pounds of red sand an rust on the floor. It was a mess.

    Agreed. I think sometimes that there is so much crap in places where there is no way anything could get in there that it must have been factory installed during the original assembly. Although I’m uncertain how they determine how much dirt, rust, bottle caps, animal skeletons, playing cards, pieces of clothing, pennies, old spark plugs …and on & on…to put in each car .
