Default Is this the worst bottom arm ever?

Has anyone seen a worse one than this?

Mine is getting a bit rusty, no where near as bad as this. Wirebrushed it up and waxoiled it. For future how which is a subframe for a saloon?

My god,never seen a car so young with rust like that!!
All the 75s Ive owned / worked on over here in Australia still have their proof coat on under the cars, albeit a bit dusty and dirty.
You get rust,we get stone chips and faded paint- pick your poison!!

I can make up my mind what's worse, but these must be a contender for the prize.
