I got lucky with mine, 12 year old DD year round with Wisconsin winters, only bubbled paint on rockers.
I couldn't turn it down because every other CC for sale on craigslist has rust dripping from the gas tank lid
It might have a few scratches, but it is solid.
It is still winter here, we live near the lake and it is still 49 degrees
How's the weather down in Indiana? Probably much warmer.
I am so glad my heater works so nice, I like hot feet!
