Does anyone have a 50-year-old car that doesn’t drip a drop of something from somewhere?

        A little oil blowing all along the bottom of the floors helps keep them RUST FREE!

        I had a bud that poured ATF all over his trunk floors, his GTO had great trunk floors!!!!!

            The only thing my 73 leaks is self inflicted.

            I forgot to cover the transmission while the engine was out and accidentally collateral sandblasted the torque converter seal.

            One of these years I'll get around to pulling the trans and replacing that seal that would have taken 15 minutes to do before I put the engine back in.

            DOH!

            Two manual steering cars here with manual transmissions, one truck too. All 1970 model year.

            No leaks.

            Power steering & automatic transmissions are much more prone to leaks.

                They're not oil spots, they're character marks.

                  I have a 73-year old car that hasn't dripped a drop of oil in 26-years. Someday I plan to put the engine back in it.

                    No drops here, but been in the shop for a year. 4 years since regular driving.
