Japanese Rustoseums: two stacked Nissan Skyline KPGC10 GT-Rs

December 15, 2014 in rustoseums

It doesn’t happen often to find a pair of stacked Nissan Skyline KPGC10 GT-Rs in a junkyard, let alone one of them chopped in half. A half rusted Skyline in a junkyard and half overgrown is obviously a great subject for photography. That’s why I found it not odd to find the same stacked (half) Nissan Skyline KPGC10 GT-R twice on the interwebs:

First stack is a Nissan Skyline KPGC10 on top of a Nissan Skyline C210. The Mazda Savanna (RX-7) in front of these two Skylines still appears as if it could just drive off and fence off its (rusty) fate.

Getting a bit closer made me suspect that the top Skyline actually only exists out of the rear part: Read the rest of this entry →

Japanese Rustoseums: the very rare junkyard

August 23, 2014 in rustoseums

From various sources (like WasabiCars) I understood that finding a junkyard in Japan is very rare. There are some private yards that are mostly owned by garage owners and use the cars in the yard as spare parts. When I saw this photo of a real junkyard on a Japanese blog I couldn’t believe what I saw:

In this big pile of rust I detected: a Mercury Cougar, a four door Toyota Chaser X30, a Mitsubishi Galant Λ (aka the Mitsubishi/Plymouth Sapporo and Dodge Challenger), a Toyota Celica A60 (maybe an XX?), a Nissan Skyline C210, a Toyota Corona T130, a Toyota Crown MS50 and the nicest of them all: a Toyota Publica van.

Japanese Rustoseums: Mazda Cosmo 110S

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 →

Japanese Rustoseums: Nissan Fairlady 280Z

May 31, 2014 in rustoseums

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:

I must say he portrayed the Fairlady very well!

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