Rusty Old cars

A collection of historic cars from various English speaking parts of the world. We like to drive these vehicles and of course they need regular repairs too. Mostly cars from 1937 to 1999, but also kayaks and sewing machines.

Read about travel and tinkering with mechanical machines, visit the Rusty daytrips weblog (below) where you can see how we travel, drive, paddle, break fix and find on a regular basis.

Even though weather was a bit nippy the Austin Pickup enjoyed driving us around some beautiful roads.

Austin Club Holland: klein maar fijn

Austin Club Holland: klein maar fijn

Het gaat bij deze club om de wat grotere voor-oorlogse Austin Modellen, zoals de Ten, Twelve en meer, van voor 1950.

Dutch Wagoneer Fanclub & Dutch Wagoneer Drivers Facebookgroep: gezelligheid kent geen tijd

Ze waren er zelf helemaal door overdonderd: de organisatoren van de eerste bijeenkomst van de Wagoneer fanclub Whatsappgroep & Dutch Wagoneer Drivers Facebookgroep. Ze zeggen wel eens dat als je er één gezien hebt dat je ze allemaal gezien hebt, maar de ongeveer veertig aanwezige Wagoneers waren allemaal heel verschillend!  Dit is vast een record […]
