Because my $6k, 150k, 20 year old car (SPG) was not manufactured with galvanized steel, and would starting rusting if exposed to the salt in a bag of French fries. You could probably hear it rust in the garage if exposed to Minnesota winter road salt.

My new 9-5, with galvanized steel and modern factory rust-proofing, can handle the road salt (with a regular diet of winter car washes).
