Looks like an MG TD that someone threw every knick knack at the JC Whitney catalog they managed to get their hands on or the best VW replica of a MG TD I have ever seen. I suspect the first.
I also thought MG, but I saw no manufacturer emblems on it though. It does have a Vintage Vehicle state plate on the front, I'm not sure what that requires.

My favourite car in our club used to be the car which preceded this Rambler sedan, a white Rambler Classic coupe. It developed head gasket problems, and the owner sold it and replaced it with this aqua sedan, only to have it develop the same problem! As I don't love it as much, I only took this photograph of the cool steel stripe detail.

MGB GT. Living in SoCal you see a lot of older cars still being used regularly and parked outside. Given that it is SoCal, often, it means sun damage as seen here.

You can still buy a new MG B V8 in the UK, (MG-R) produced in small numbers.

The old cars that you post photos of seem to have very little rust. They must be away from the ocean, and away from snow.
Yup. You really need to be with a mile or less of the coast for rust (you can see rusty cars here, but usually just those that live on the coast). This car was seen about 1 mile inland and it seems pretty solid.

BTW - The snow by itself is generally less of an issue for rust with galvanized bodies, it is the salt they put on the roads that is. Of course, with the old cars that were not galvanized - any kind of moisture would cause problems - and I suspect that even galvanized bodies would given enough moisture, but when we lived in Portland, which is very wet but salt is not used on the roads - and rust issues were not as big a problem as what you will see where they use salt.
