What is it when.....

Hey PPLs,

Today, I started the car after 2 days. After I had moved it out of the garage, i noticed a trail of water behind the car. I followed it back and it was the exhaust. There was a generous amount of water on the ground and it was all rusty!!.

When i looked at the cardboard I had left underneath it (for (all) the leaks) I noticed there was coolant on it and it was not from the radiator or reservoir.

What is it ?

Thanks in advance

Yeah apparently it's strongly advisable to leave the engine running for a several minutes to get rid of the condensation, otherwise rust can occur.
