Dan, on the contrary, that is one of the most rusted out Civics I've ever seen, New England or otherwise. I sold my '95 VX with 225,000 miles on it 8 months ago. Granted, it was 2 years younger than that '93 on Ebay, but it only had the usual rust starting above the rear wheels. 2 years from now it certainly wouldn't have been as badly rusted as that VX. It may be that being surrounded by the salt air on Cape Cod makes it more rust-prone than being inland.
Well it ended with no bids. Ideal for someone who wants some VX parts. I bought my car from Northern PA where it snows a lot and there is salt on the roads all the time, so I'm afraid my car isn't much better than this under the paint. I've seen a few civic hatches in PA that didn't look much worse than this one.
