    Question Shopping for an LS1

    I found one in Pasadena, TX south of Houston. Should I be concerned about a car that has spent its whole life near the coast? The car I found is a 2002 WS6 with 35k miles. Does the climate near the coast really rust and corrode a car really badly? Or am I just worrying for nothing. How can I tell if this car is something I should buy or stay away from.

    Thanks,
    Charles

    You don't really have to worry about a car like this having rust problems. If the paint or metal hasn't been damaged by a wreck or something rust won't be a problem. For one the car is still pretty new. Also, alot of it is plastic anyways.
