Question Have they salted the 401 at all yet??



I heard there may have been some preparatory salting of the 401? Is this true?

Haha yeah, I remember it all too well. I picked up the Ti with the M52 swap done on that day, with the snow tires still back at my parents. Took like 3 hours to get home from Sauga, sideways.

Salt doesnt cause corrosian, moisture does.

FACT: Drive on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah , and your car wont rust.
