SEMA SAN Strike Force


Featuring an image of his own ‘64 Chevy Nova, George 'Rusty' Rust created custom metal dash plaques (shown here) for attendees of his “CCAD Cruise-In at the DQ” in July.


George 'Rusty' Rust is a fan of vintage cars. He currently belongs to the Millsboro Cruizers Car Club and the National Nostalgic Nova Club. In addition to attending car shows, he promotes them and holds cruise-ins as well. Rusty discovered the SEMA Action Network (SAN) several years ago through the promotion of Collector Car Appreciation Day (CCAD). Since that time, he has hosted a “CCAD Cruise-In at the DQ” each July in his hometown of Millsboro, Delaware, to pay tribute to our hobby’s holiday. Although he dreams about many rides, the Chevy Nova has long held Rusty’s primary affection. He has bought and sold several of these models over the years.

The ‘64 Chevy Nova (pictured above) lit a special flame inside Rusty—much deeper than its “hot” flame job. This wagon instantly impressed the Nova enthusiast while he was attending an event in 1994. After striking up a conversation with its owner, he made an offer to buy the car, which was quickly denied. However, Rusty requested that he be considered as a buyer should the opportunity ever arise. Meanwhile, his desire to own a Nova wagon increased with time. In 2002, he was nearly ready to give up his search when he received the phone call he hoped would come: the ’64 was for sale! The car was in such great shape that it has only received minor work since trading hands. For those in the area, be on the lookout for the bright yellow wagon lettered with “Tweedy’s Taxi” on the side.

Way to go, Rusty! We appreciate your passion and work to benefit hobbyists in The First State.
