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.
