To rust-proof or not to rust-proof? '96 Volvo 960 900 1996

Just bought a beautiful "new" 1996 Volvo 960 driven by some old lady in Arizona. 80k miles. Hasn't seen an Upstate New York rainy Summer or snowy/salty Winter. I don't have a garage. There is no rust on this car (only surface) and I want to keep it that way.

I've heard bad things about undercoatings (has to be done perfectly or it'll trap water instead of repel it, and nobody around me does it perfectly). I've been recommended to do an annual rust-proofing treatment. I don't want to do it myself.

Anybody have opinions about whether I should rust-proof? Any experience with 960s rusting or never rusting?

Thanks in advance!!
