Bah!  I have a '56 Austin-Healey (1 owner since 1974!).
Its front and rear shrouds (the body metal surrounding
the engine and trunk/boot) are made of aluminum/aluminium.
On mine (needing restoration) the part that bolts to
the body has corroded. It may be the dissimilar metals
and electrolysis, but I'm sure salt hasn't helped it.
(It was a daily driver when I took it off the road.)

But an A8 would still be a nice winter beater.
