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!
It is even more impressive seen from the rear: Continue reading
Yesterday I posted a cutaway picture of a Suzuki Fronte Coupe LC10W and today I have an even more impressive cutaway car: a Nissan Bluebird SSS 910!
Well, actually it isn’t drawn… It has been scavenged for panels, then standing outside too long and the whole body structure collapsed some time ago. So in other words: just like a cutaway picture you can see its inner bowels 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!

Found at: Med-i

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!
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: Continue reading
