At first, I thought it was a total rust bucket, but it seems to be deliberately kept in this condition with some embellishment.

Taken at an event called "Feel the 50s" in Venlo. More of the same.

This is wonderful, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It had no problem grabbing and holding on to my attention, Ray.
Very good, Ayush! We've seen some similar vehicles... Frank would have to tell you about them though!
Ayush Basu: I remember some posts by Frank, Elizabeth. I get a strong rural, midwest feel from such vehicles, Elizabeth. I could be completely off though!
Je ne la trouve pas très belle.
Ayush Basu: I think the owner has a very different idea of visual appeal, Martine.
I do like the rust. Nic shots.
Ayush Basu: I think this is the first time I have seen a car with such cosmetic condition, Michael.

Definitely a lifestyle choice to keep the car like this Ayush
Ayush Basu: The owner managed to strike a delicate cosmetic balance here, Chris.
Superbe, la peinture est un peu passée, mais elle a toujours e l'allure.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: Yes, the owner certainly has his/her own thoughts on cosmetic beauty, Pascale. Have a wonderful week ahead.
That is quite unique, Ayush, and why not... it kind of suits the car.
(I was going through many old bookmarks and I came upon Ayash's bookmark and of course I kept it)
Ayush Basu: The owner managed to strike a delicate cosmetic balance here, Astrid. I looked at it and I was immediately struck by a rural, midwest US feel, although I could be completely wrong.
He really delves into the stories behind people and places nowadays, Astrid.

It is certainly novel Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It had no problem grabbing and holding on to my attention, Chad.
strange to want it in that condition, but it's also strangely beautiful, isn't it Ayush? great shots!!
Ayush Basu: You are right! The owner managed to strike a delicate cosmetic balance here, Elaine.
Cuts down on the wash and polish duties, each to their own !
Ayush Basu: I think so too, Martin. I guess this works for the owner.

Yikes ..what a beast
Ayush Basu: It made a good photo opportunity for me, Richard.
It begs the question, 'Why!'
Ayush Basu: I have no clue, Brian. And I am sure the owner of this vehicle falls into a minority.

It seems as if they are sanding the rust. If that is so, there will soon be no bonnet.
Ayush Basu: grin
Next time this vehicle rolls into a garage for an oil change and other timely maintenance, toss in a new bonnet too!
I have shots of a car that is kept that way too.
Ayush Basu: It was a wonderful photo opportunity for me, Mary!

I love your perspective on this. It shows off the uniqueness of the car.
Ayush Basu: It had no problem grabbing and holding on to my attention, Beth.
I declare. Sometimes the vintage look can be enhanced. smile
Ayush Basu: I think the owner struck a delicate balance with this one, Ginnie.

I wonder why, though?
Ayush Basu: Yes indeed, I think this is the first time I have seen a car with such cosmetic condition, Alan.
That is weird Ayush
Ayush Basu: I have no clue, Bill. And I am sure the owner of this vehicle falls into a minority.
Not to my taste!
Ayush Basu: I think this is the first time I have seen a car with such cosmetic condition, Tom.
A fine capture...
Ayush Basu: It had no problem grabbing and holding on to my attention, Larry.
classic beast, in classic condition smile Nice job!
Ayush Basu: It had no problem grabbing and holding on to my attention, Rob.
