If you bought it looks like it'd be easier to rub back all the paint and let it rust some more - go for the rat rod look

Honestly, my 240d is the biggest, crappiest turd ever, but it is THE most fun and enjoyable car I've ever owned.
And I get complimented on it daily, even though it has horrible rust
But the best part was, I got a running/driving awesome car for $500!
I'll post up pictures after I get my new oil pan in and the engine raised
