Absolutely nothing.

Thanks to all the brine and salt they use on the roads around here, the average car is probably little more than five years old, so there's an awful lot of boring sameness. You could stand on a corner and quickly run out of numbers to count all of the entry-level Camaros and Mustangs, and the generic Camrys, Civics, Fusions, etc. The weird thing is that there are very few rattling rustbuckets on the roads, so I'm not sure where they go. I do know that our insurance rates are high as drivers in the Carolinas are some of the worst in the country, so perhaps people are just smashing them up before they have a chance to rust.

A couple of months ago, I was in San Francisco on business, and remembered one of the things I liked about California - car bodies are almost eternal there, so there was no shortage of old Volvos, Beetles, Metropolitans, etc.
