I don't mind rain, it's the torrential downpours we were having that are a problem. Slipping and sliding is run, but not being able to see is a b****.
Not surprised about the Altima, I owned one a long time ago and kept it for 2 months before trading it. Most vanilla, generic, uninspiring vehicle I've ever driven. It made an Accord feel exotic.

My guys are working on the Buick GNX, the one with 12 miles on it, and it's a complete cluster****. If a person is going to collect cars, that's great, I'm totally with you, but please for the love of God start the thing up and let it run every once in awhile. Everything on it is ruined, no we didn't try to start it, of course, but all the lubricants are now like paste and the block is seized. Right now I'm wishing I'd never bought it. Even the window motors are messed up, and the washer pump, and well, just about anything else with moving parts. (The stereo works, hah!) My guys are like, "No, no, we can fix it" and I'm sure they can, but I don't want them wasting weeks completely tearing it down and replacing most of the powertrain, with expensive hard-to-locate parts, just to get it back to some semblance running order.
Essentially we're going to get it back to where it's cosmetically and electronically sound and then I'll donate it to the local muscle car museum for a tax write off. I'd like to give the previous owner a good shake and box his ears, though, there's no excuse for this type of idiocy and neglect. It's absurd. I doubt I'll bother trying to find another, the car itself just isn't cup of Joe anyway, it feels cheap and poorly designed, even compared to a Mustang of that era. I'm surprised these things have such a rabid following, TBH.

I think a lot of the GNX worship is due to the begining of the rise of NASCAR at the same time. There really was no other product out trying to capitalize on that at the time.
Still, Probably should have gone for a Shelby GLHS
