The Pushmatics fare especially poorly by the beach. (This is right in Randy's hometown) I've always loved this "aquamarine crayon" color, but the breakers sure do get crappy after 40 years or so. The sand doesn't help much, either

Scott, Seems the Pushmatics dont fare well much anywhere! Corrosion is an issue with most everything when you get close enough to the ocean... (I've changed 3 panels on Oceanfront walk in Newport Beach, All rusted out, holes & all... One was a pushmatic... Lots of Noalox on the bus & lugs helps to at least get out of the warranty period before nature has her way with the new stuff!) You ain't kidding about the sand either... with the vents in the bottom of the breakers, they seem to attract sand something fierce! Especially in our Inland Empire & desert areas... (The 909 to the locals ) vegetation is typically minimal there... Ive pulled pushmatics out of a panel in Colton & it was like a salt shaker!
