not really a fan of rusty cars.



but the one on top is super-rusty. just bought a 4' x 4' plate to build new frame rails and outriggers for it, actually. gotta get the body solid so i can put the engine back in it when it's done...

You mean you have to have a nice looking car to be able to drive it?

my sister and husband - when they were first sent over via Air Force to London - looked around for signature beetle and found one. They did a huge amount of traveling in it - guess it had some multi-colored panels - no OUTWARD peace signs (on the seats, however, there were many) - and a whole lotta other stuffs. My BIL looked for this vehicle - my sister - was ---- meh. But they did a few years of traveling in it - how FUN!!!!!! I'd do it!!!

no, you need a structurally sound car to drive it.

Those are structually sound.

I can actually buy a beetle for $500, but I like the bus more.

I've sold all of them, but once again, my old original paint kombi:






This was the rustiest car I've ever seen. I eventually cut it up:




Not rusty, but what evva.

I just cut the rusty fenders off my '85 Camry. I'm going to try rebuilding them with expanding foam insulation and Bondo next week.

I wish I had some photos of how crummy my car looks.

My 65 bug did not have floor pans for many moons. I loved that car. Got back and forth to many surf spots for a long time. Had a real Fred Flintstone appeal to it.
