Those front floors are definitely bad on the sides, but can be fixed. Before you do much work on the floors pull the front fenders. You're going to find a lot of rust through where the front inner wheel panels meet the firewall. Those rust then let water in at the cowl. Stuff gets trapped under the fender and eventually causes rust. Design flaw? Not really -- takes 20 years to rust out, and the cars were never intended to last that long. Early Mustangs have the same problems, took 20+ years for those problems to develop though.
