    After washing car, I have water that doesn't drain out in back of car. It can sit a few days, and I take it out for a drive and the bumper has water drops on it under the tail lights. Anyone experience this also? Thanks

      do you have trunk trim? water can get behind it and take a while to leak out. My 67 Dart has full GT badge on trunk and takes a few hours to fully drain. Also you could be getting water in the trunk lid between the outer skin and the inner frame. try opening the trunk and see what comes out

        My 66 is bad that way. 70 Swinger not so much. My wife's new Buick Envision us terrible. Run it through the wash, they dry it off and a 10 min. drive home and water streaks all over. Yes the 66 tail trim panels have lips on the bottom that chanels water. The top trim does the same thing at the rear of the quartrer glass. Pretty normal for old cars
