The Rides . . .

“It’s only original once.” That’s why some rodders prefer the sheen of oxidation over the shine of a high-dollar paint. Eye-popping colors and paint so rich you can swim in it are beautiful to behold, but there is hidden beauty in rust, wear and tear.

I caught this tow in progress as we were leaving Martinsville Speedway.
