Rust?

All of the stuff mentioned above is cosmetic and could be fixed for a couple of thousand dollars. What counts in an Alfa is RUST, and there are no pictures of the underneath of the car. The new 1600 badge, and the fact that it's not level, on the trunk, indicates either rust damage at that point (not uncommon) or a ding, or worse. but what's in the spare tire well, the hollow parts of the frame, under the floorboards? I have seen cars that looked very beautiful indeed in eBay, but in which the beautiful paint job hid a lot of bondo, frames were patched with fiberglass, etc. If the car were really intact underneath it might be worth upwards of $15K; but you have to know what's going on below.
