RustyButTrusty On The Street – VW, Chevrolet, and Ford

September 20, 2013

You might be asking yourself, why did I come here to view cars from such mundane, mainstream marques as these, when I can see these everywhere? Well, outside of the dry western United States, finding cars like this just parked on the street as people’s daily daily drivers is a lot more unusual. And one of the fun parts of this hobby is finding a new angle of interest in cars you would ordinarily dismiss out-of-hand. For example, check out this 1960s VW Karmann Ghia convertible. It’s had some neat modifications, including Beetle headlights and Porsche 914 wheels. What could be under the hood? Oh right, nothing because it’s a VW! The satin black is a current trend, but ultimately these do look better in gloss colors.
