Well there is always an exception to the rule. I am talking here about cars from South Africa. One of my first was an ex-SA sprint in about 1968, then only 5/6 years old and recently imported.
It was `unfortunately` totalled by a rubber winged post office van, and insurance paid out full value. I thought a repair would be possible and got the car on a lift, horror of horrors there was no chassis; salt water/wind had worked wonders. Basically a death trap....
