I’m staying with my wife’s family in a beachfront rental in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The house next door is closed up for the season but they left their 2002 - 2005 Ford Thunderbird. The registration expired in August, it has a flat tire, and it has rust issues already from prolonged exposure to the salty beachfront air.

The film on the windows and all over the car is pretty thick, too. I am guessing that’s also from the salty air. I wonder what’s wrong with it? These still sell for decent prices so I can’t imagine what made them leave it behind.

I also have a sick curiosity to know how rusty it is underneath...

Also, I tried posting this about a million times but Kinja hates me. So, I apologize in advance for any multiple posts.
