I don’t care what kind of racing you’re into, but this is too cool for school. Maybe its just me, but these were the supercars I grew up with, so they strike fond memories of staying up late and watching Speed Channel reruns of these races. Enjoy! (I know, the song sucks, but just focus on the sound of the brilliant McLaren F1.)
For those of you who know, Rusty is coming back. For those of you who don’t, well, it is time to stop hiding under a rock.
Burroughs is an amazing car artist. Mike didnt just build Rusty. He crafted Rusty with the same passion that an artist like Banksy crafts his artwork.
Here is a little photo-history of the car:
The car showed great progression. Rusty, as he is called, became less and less of a car and began to become something, something more real. He had personality. Though the rusted style is often controversial, that did not really matter with Rusty. He wasn’t trendy. He was an art piece.
And then disaster struck.
The garage he was kept in befell to an accidental fire.
Rally racing has always been such an interesting style of racing to me. I remember being 13, turning on the speed channel late at night to watch the World Rally Championship and being enthralled seeing Petter Solberg and his peers navigate around the muddy european tracks with such skill and finesse. Rally racing had its golden age much earlier though, with a class of cars called “Group B.” I can go on explaining, but videos do the Group B racers much more justice.
I highly encourage you take it on yourself to research this great era of motorsports.
