The Rusty Cars

Here's the Rusty Car Collection. A fine selection of historic cars from various English speaking parts of the world. The Rusty Team like to use these vehicles and of course they need regular repairs too.

The Classic cars:
It all started with this 1970 Wolseley 18/85S mk2. in 1984. A strong and reliable vehicle that has taken us on many memorable holiday trips in the UK.
A little later this 1979 Mini Van was adopted to carry all those spare parts. Including engine blocks. Was used much for winter duty until the Blaze MG took over that task.


1961 Morris Minor. Great little runabout. Fun to drive and fun to work on. The perfect classic car?


The MGBs
1969 MGB GT. Pretty American spec. Dry state cheerleader.

Truly a rusty, but trusty car, this 1973 MGB GT.  Used as a daily hack for a decade. Mothballed to be a donor for the other MGs and left in the shed for another decade, now back on the road.
1978 MGB Roadster. This Californian prefers to go topless! 

The Thirties cars:
1937 Austin Seven special, scary, but loveable dreamcar. Maximum excitement per cc/cui!
 "Big Al" 1938 Austin Seven Opal. Such a little Gem.
1937 Austin Ten Conway Cabriolet. Dependable and very pleasant when I need a rest from modern traffic.


This is the 1939 Wolseley New ten. It was acquired as an "easy project", but as usual things always took longer than planned, but the car is back on the road now.

The Jeeps:



Willy's Jeep CJ5 1957, shabby but always going strong. Likes to play offroad. Everybody's friendly Jeep. Bought cars like 1966 Bronco and 1954 Landrover to replace it, but they went away. What was I thinking?

1988 Jeep XJ "Baby Wagoneer", the trusty-rusty-workhorse. Wonderful for American Roadtrip style cruising. It likes to eat mud like dogs like to swim. It gets us places in all weather and tows nicely. Very reliable and strong.
