Last weekend I watched Daniel O’Grady’s Wasabi Cars video about the Nissan Silvia CSP311 and got inspired by it… Actually it wasn’t finding one as clean as the Silvia in the video but rather more challenge myself to find a rusty one, one that crumbles away while staring at the photos! At least I think I managed to do a proper job here:
Just imagine: only 554 of these cars were made!
It isn’t that bad from this angle, but it gets a lot worse from the other side of the car: Read the rest of this entry →

Part fourtythree of the Japanese Rustoseums already? It really is going fast this way…
This Toyota Soarer GZ10 is slowly sinking away into the grass of the farmland. Or is it the other way around: the grass is slowly soaring above the Soarer?
And a small tree is growing besides the back of the car: Read the rest of this entry →

Finally I can post up some progress made on fixing the inner fenders: on the left rear inner fender all rust has been solved and it just needs a little skim with the angle grinder before it can receive its new coating.
But during the fixup the welder kind of set the rear seat belt on fire, so I’m in need of a new one.
If you, by chance, have a 73370-14030-01 lying around I would be very happy to release you from it.
And yes: I’m in need of some replacement springs. Once it has been fixed up that’s my next priority!
On the other side it doesn’t look this good yet: more pictures on the next page

Yes, that is no typo:
Merry Christmas and a rustfree New Year!
My automotive year ended quite badly. What turned out to be a very tiny hole in the rear inner fender on both sides proved to be a true nightmare: the tinworm struck again, ate its way through and instead of a white Christmas I’m actually seeing quite reddish now…
Lucky enough this is the only rust on the whole floorpan of the Carina as it has been creeping from inside out and not the other way around. So to prevent my Carina from becoming a rustoseum I’m having this fixed shortly after New Year and let’s hope it is a rustfree year for everyone!

Suzuki SC100 owner Ron shared this rusty Suzuki Fronte LC10W racer with me in the comments of the Wangan Warriors 10 posting:
The Fronte LC10W features already a lot of racing looks, but this little powerhouse certainly has been modified to race spec in the b(l)ooming 70s or 80s!
From the side it becomes apparent that there is no way to return this LC10W to that era anymore: Read the rest of this entry →
