    Usual rust

    I see a lot of for sale ads, saying "has rust in usual places".
    What the hell is this rust in usual places, & who decides where this is?

    I have 29, (I think), 70s holdens, & most have zero rust, & the ones that do have any rust, it is bubbles in sills or 20cent hole behind rear wheels. I do have one HZ sedan with a couple rust bubbles on the scuttle in front of windscreen.
    When I see cars advertised as minimal rust, & the pictures show holes to fit a hand through, I feel like challenging their honesty.

    What does everyone on here consider usual rust?

    No rust in the quarters that I can see! Gutters look rust free also.
