I love NY!
The rear of the car had 1/4'' of salt powder from salt spray drawn in from the vacuum!
Had to do 160 miles on Christmas day.
It's about 15 out so I am going to try to spray it off. The good news is my grease / oil is holding up underneath.
A Lada with manually adjusted drum brakes sounds like a fantastic car.
