I used to look like that without the hair, but at 79 yrs old and many more lbs, not so much.

amazing how rough it looks already.

Seriously.
My first vehicle was a '69 Beetle which my father bought new, and gave me in 1976.
It was seven years old, and the floorboards were leaking/rusted through, and it had the typical rust in the triangle body panels behind the B pillars. Crawling underneath, it was a rusty nightmare.

These were CHEAP vehicles in every way.

It wasn't just VWs. Most car bodies didn't last long in the rust belt.

The big innovation was bodies made from galvanized steel. It was a costly process back then, but most car bodies use it now.

Yeah, my brother's '72 Toyota Celica just about fell apart due to rust in 1982.
Ten years old, and it was GONE! (This was my second car, by the way, bought it from Bro in 1980).

Nice! That's Carnaby Street in London, before it was pedestrianised.

Looks a little bit different today, but still recognisable: https://goo.gl/maps/Gi6e7X1JZS6TynJE7
