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.

Swinging Swalmen: Wolseley 1500

Swinging Swalmen: Wolseley 1500

This was a very scenic roadtrip to the south in the Wolseley 1500. We drove there mostly avoiding the motorway. This meant the old car drove along old routes past small towns and quiet roads.  The event was at a beautiful old farmhouse and there were cars as old as 1931 up to 1991.    

New old kayak to the test: Stipyaks Ardeche 420

New old kayak to the test: Stipyaks Ardeche 420

The Nordkapp and Baidarka explorer are fine sea kayaks, but they are a little heavy to drag across the rocks often. In the past I had a shorter “Combi 420” that was a nice and light river kayak, so when I saw this “Ardeche 420” it seemed like a good replacement. The first time […]

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. De bescheiden groep leden voelt meer als een goed op elkaar ingewerkte vriendengroep. Dat betekent niet dat nieuwe leden niet welkom worden geheten.  Zelf hebben we al jaren een Ten, maar ik was […]

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 […]
