a lot of those dings and dents can easily be pulled and smoothed out. it would just take a little time and effort but it could be very pretty again. Same color as mine though, i like that color.
Do your quarter panel windows leak? I see that rust spot behind your driver door, and i hear that will happen if your quarter panel windows leak. mine do, and i haven't fixed them yet. luckily it rarely rains in AZ.
I'm in Ky and I haven't seen any water in the floors but we do get plenty of rain here and sometimes it can be quite hard.The only thing that I have noticed getting wet is the bulbs in the rear. Sometime even going through a car wash they have a tendency to blow and I have to replace them but I'm going to fix that soon and I'm working on the body next had to get her running right first though.
Don't worry, I live just south of Knoxville, Tn. I have a 84 n/a (5sp) the same color. Mine has less dents but the paint is getting scaly. The clearcoat is peeling and the hood looks likes a lizard skin. It has 140,000 and runs like a top. The inside is minty. I've replaced the timing belt, water pump, chts, etc. New rear axles and shocks. Ready to change front struts. It's a slow progressive resurrection. I paid $700 for it last fall, with a parts car. Every time I do something to the car it only gets better.
