I was trying to cover up the rust with a metallic blue similar to the car's base color. I was never gonna impress a girl with a 12 year old Rambler to begin with, and I was just covering up rust holes. I'd just got home from overseas duty in the AF and put my money towards school instead of a car. Couldn't find a decent job to save my life in '72 due to the economy at the time. Thing was, the clunker was great in the snow, always started in sub-zero weather, and only cost pennies to operate. Weird note---that had the same engine that my '99 Jeep has in it. Rambler 4 litre I-6 will run forever.
