You should pray to the gods of unrusted vehicles that salt never becomes a major use item. Talk to anyone from the east coast especially the north east about their vehicles. Car wash or not, unless you put it on a rack and power-wash the underneath, everything WILL rust. I grew up in MD and dealt w rusty rigs constantly. trying to find any used vehicle undamaged is impossible. Last year in NY I saw 2007-10 rigs that were rotted out.
The other thing about salt is it makes a brine solution that has a lower freezing point, until it gets diluted. So with all the hills on the west side, the solution runs away and is diluted by uphill runoff. That leaves a thin layer to freeze.
Salt = booooo.
