      It got milked by the dudes several high-school-aged children, and egged because of one of them, and now looks like something to make a buck on for its fuel economy.

      Might not fix the rust hole over the rear wheel or the crushed front fender.

      Are eggs really that damaging to paint if washed off quick enough? I had a '74 super bug that was egged overnight and i washed it in the morn. No damage. I know of some things which can definitely make some nasty work of paint in short order, but that's information best kept as secreted as possible IMO.

      The pattern of peel spots makes me thing someone went around the car pouring brake fluid or some other chemical that eats paint.

      At least it's not as bad as the Integra that got vandalized with aircraft stripper!

      Looks like a fairly typical 20 yr old vehicle - neglected, but kept running.
