It must be the salt used on roads there, I've yet to see a rusted out Fiero here, both of my 85's have very little frame rust and no trunk rust. Rust under the battery is a different story though.
Yes the salt gets up behind the wheel well and where the side of the trunk has a spot weld it rust. They start small and can expand to where only the fiberglass quarter is the only thing holding up the back. The uni body over the rear axle can rust through too.
The batter tray is also an issue here. I coated mine in grease when the car was new and now use a gel battery and it is like new yet today.
the cars look great outside but under the skin they can be a real mess.
