After Nissan’s success with the BE-1, the Pao and the Figaro Nissan must have smelled money. So next up for them was retro styling a SUV on top of the Sunny B14 platform and they called it the Nissan Rasheen and sold the car from 1994 to 2000.
For some reason it looks very similar to the Wartburg 353 built in East Germany (DDR) but I don’t think they did that on purpose. I can’t imagine they would do that only that short after the Fall.
Anyway, BANKAKUEMIKO uploaded a video of this marvel at his local junkyard in Japan: 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 →

March 24, 2013 in down on the street
I was hesitating whether to post this Honda Civic coupe EJ as a rustoseum or as Down on the Street, but as it is more a funguseum than a rustoseum it became the latter…
I did spotted this Civic coupe driving around my hometown frequently several years ago but apparently its owner lost interest in it.
I first did see it parked around this spot about two years ago, moving to its current location about a year ago: more pictures on the next page

This (nowadays) very rare second generation Datsun Violet is not for the faint hearted as its original color has been replaced by bubbly brown patina:
The Datsun Violet 160J SSS A10 was sold in Europe with the twin carbed L16T and was top of the line Violet back then. Given the state of this Violet now I reckon it should be currently at the bottom of the line.
Can it really be that bad? Yes it can! Just take a look on the other side of the car: Read the rest of this entry →
