Side skirts=That's why I'd never buy a talon! I want a Laser. I've got 2 1Gs. 1G strut towers don't rust. My DD is easily as badly rusted under it's pass-side skirt. That's why it's my winter beater. If the rust spreads too far, free 6-bolt turbo engine for my 94! The 94 came from Spokane, WA, where they use sand instead of salt. I'm covered, I think.
