June 14, 2014 in rustoseums

The previous rustoseum I posted was photographed by the same person as who photographed this rusty Mazda Cosmo 110S:

I didn’t mind the 280ZX that much but this Cosmo almost makes my cry. Both from anger and grief…

However I must say Gagaga7310 is a really good photographer. He photographed the rust on trunk in the best way possible: Read the rest of this entry →

It has been a while since I posted a good crusty rustoseum! I found this Nissan Fairlady 280Z on a blog called GaGaGa who is actually a photographer of many things, including rusty cars:

It is even more impressive seen from the rear: Read the rest of this entry →

Japanese Rustoseums: Toyota Celica 2000GT RA25

March 1, 2014 in rustoseums

A few days ago I asked Daniel O’Grady a similar question: why do the Japanese cars in Japan rust from the top down while they rust from the bottom up on the European soil?

It is funny because I can explain the European bottom up rust: we simply put salt on our roads during wintertime to fight ice and snow. However why the cars in Japan tend to rust from the top is a mystery to me…

Anyway, this beautifully crusty brown (photographed in black and white) Toyota Celica 2000GT RA25 is a good example of the top down rust:

Anyone got the answer to my question?

Last post in the rusty Nissan Silvia CSP311 Japanese Rustoseum series!
Japanese Rustoseums: Nissan Silvia CSP311
This particular Nissan Silvia CSP311 was found in Kusamura with a lot of overgrowth. The car appears to be in a worse state than it actually is beneath all that rust!

Only parts like the bonnet, roof and trunk are actually rusted: Read the rest of this entry →
