Rusty Autos was registered as a domain name in 2018 and the website was started in 2019. John and Eddie Cunningham, father and son have a lifetime of experience working on old and new cars.

At a family barbecue (and beer) in the summer of 2018, we decided we should start a web site and share everything we know about the maintenance and repair of old cars.


Both of us are qualified mechanics and classic car owners, we’re total gear-heads with lots of on the job experience, working on cars from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.

We’re always working on some project, currently it’s an 80’s Mercedes Cosworth, she needs a lot of love, from welding patch panels to an engine rebuild, we’ll keep you posted with our progress.

Our “how to” posts are helping fellow gear-heads all over the world and we hope to add a YouTube channel in 2020, dedicated to helping our readers take care of their own classic car maintenance.
