A lot of people in the midwest and northeast rust belt areas seem to be obsessed with shipping cost. Sometimes bent out of shape, no way they'll pay $150 shipping for a $150 door or fender for example. Strange thing is the part or the car for that matter is close to the same price up here, complete with rust. JMO.
