Rusty - for those that know, for anyone that has a car, read this

http://www.stanceworks.com/2011/05/kill-car/

for anyone that doesn't know what happened that car burned to the ground in a freak accident.

here is was in its glory.


that article is just something to take to heart. very sad, but it portrays beautifully how people feel about their vehicles.

i literally cried when i parted and sold my focus. it was a sad day for me. i can only imagine how Mike feels about Rusty.

its going to be hard to rebuild. i think he is going to need a lot of chassis work.

but Mike is amazing, we shall see what he comes up with.

I bet you it comes back with ever more character and attitude. Honestly, I've never looked at that car and said "damn, I want to drive it". But it did however reflect tons of creativity and edginess. You can tell that guy put a ton of work on it and built it for himself. That does count in my book.
