Why the modern car does not rust

Back in the 1960’s and 70’s the motor car was still very much a luxury item for many of us. However those that did own one, wanted style and panache in the car. For many this meant chrome and shiny metal finished that gleamed in the sun.

Now, the sun drenched coasts of California or the Nevada Mojave desert were perfect for this as the lack of moisture created the best conditions to maintain it. However, this was an approach that was next to useless in the UK. The simple reason was that metal cars were likely to rust to the point of collapse. So much so that the MOT test involved checking for bodywork integrity.

Car manufacturers were very aware of this and so they began to devise ways that the rust could be contained.  One of the best things you could do is to place the car in a garage every night. You will need to have a decent set of doors for the car to get in and out of. This is why you need to contact Garage Doors Taunton based experts to find out what options are available to you.

One of the changes in the manufacturing of cars in today’s society is that elements of the cars that could be prone to rust, such as bumpers, are now made of plastics that help to protect these high risk areas from being susceptible to rust and corrosion.
