After a winter-long absence, I'm resurrecting Beater of the Week. (That particular word choice always takes me back to a game I played as boy - like I'm a 10th level cleric or something.) Anyway, this offering is from Boston, an early 90's Acura Legend. Too new to be a beater? I don't think so. Note the unrepaired hood, the rusted wheels and fenders, the paint condition and the more-or-less permanent dirt. Anything can be a beater. The keys are condition and frequency of use.
