Went for a LONGGGGGG cruise the other day to look at a 67 camaro. Guy said it had all original panels and the car was in a 8 out of 10 shape. Got there and at first look i thought i found my next car. Car was original color(repaint) butternut yellow with black ss stripe. Car looked great with hideaway headlights and all. With further inspection i found something that i had yet to see before. I crawled under the rear of the car and was looking up at the trunk floor and seen some rust at the trunk drain plug. It wasn't horrible but the trunk from the top seemed super clean.:confused: Further inspection i could see metal through the rusted trunk floor from the bottom. Long story short, Someone welded a new trunk floor right on top of the original rusty trunk floor.:mad: Never seen that one before! That was the last time i travel 1000 round trip miles to look at a car.

The previous owner of my Camaro welded a new rocker panel on top of the old one which was damaged in a accident. He then used a ton of Bondo to blend everthing in to the point that you couldn't tell till it was time to put new front fenders on, then you could see the build up. My whole car was boogered like this when I bought it.
