    Anybody know if there is a company out there selling them. I'd like to try and find something to help preserve my vehicles without having to do major cleaning and repair every year. I know they make them for marine use, and was curious if there is a automotive version.

    Good thought-but won't work. In a nutshell, the only reason they work in water environments is due to the difference in the galvanic potential between the metals. The dissimilar materials are making a mini battery using the saltwater as an electrolyte. Without an electrolyte-galvanic corrosion doesn't happen-which means all you will do is bolt zinc blocks on to your truck that will corrode faster than the frame-and do nothing to protect it.
