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?

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 →

Japanese Rustoseums: Nissan Silvia CSP311 (part 1)

December 12, 2013 in rustoseums

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 →

Japanese Rustoseums: the Sinking Soarer

September 24, 2013 in rustoseum

Part fourtythree of the Japanese Rustoseums already? It really is going fast this way…
Japanese Rustoseums: the sinking soarer
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 →
