The Mountain Dew bottle near the pedals tells it's own story.

It would seem the fellow missed his aim if we are to judge by the stain next to the brake pedal.

It is rusty, but appears to be only surface rust. Soda blasting would have it ready for body work. Compared to some Firebirds/Camaros of that vintage....and she looks pretty straight...
