It is always sad to see a forgotten or neglected car. It’s bad if the car in question is parked up for a long time and is showing signs of rust and decay. It’s even worse if the car is slowly being consumed by the foliage around it. This two-door Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86 is one such car!
Eaten by the foliage
The Minkara user mitanimomo investigated this neglected Trueno left behind in the fields. The owner could not be traced and, just like the car, the house next to it was abandoned.
The Trueno appears to be original panda, which would indicate it’s a GT Apex model. The doily lace covers are still on the seats. And it seems to be sitting on Work Equip Casting 4 spoke rims.
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: Continue reading
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.

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: Continue reading
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!
Only in Japan you can find a rusty Lamborghini Silhouette P300 rotting away:
It is 1 out of 12 RHD built cars and the total production run was 52 cars!
Behind it you can also spot an Alfa Romeo Zagato RZ. Madness!
