What is the best kind of paint to use for touch-ups?

I bought a 92 trek MTB today and it has some minor rust and a few spots that I need to fix, I don't care at all about matching colour and I feel I need to protect it since I got it for winter riding.
All the threads are on how to best find a match but what kind of paint in general would be the best to use?

Clear top coat works pretty well.
