anyone that is a regular to the car scene knows about M.Burroughs BMW (RUSTY). well apparently its no longer being driven. actually its no longer on the road… i’ll let Mike explain…
Taken from the Stanceworks Thread
“Ever since the accident a year ago, the front driver’s side tire has worn a bit differently than the others. The clearance to the fender was a little different than before, but nothing to alarm me. After all, this car was deemed “totaled”.
It wasn’t until last week that I took the car to a friend’s shop, and while there, and inspecting the car for the first time, we realized that the frame up there is tweaked. Hard.
I brushed it off as if it were nothing. Honestly, I didn’t care in the least…
but after close inspection, the body has been cracking a bit, and its starting to separate.
I wanted to ignore it. I really, really wanted to ignore it. Bad.
I said to myself “it’s been fine all along, It’l be fine. I’ll drive it until it falls apart”.
A few days ago, my best friend slipped through my hands, so to speak. Gracefully sliding my way over a speed bump, shit went to hell.
I don’t really know what else to say right now. I towed her home one last time. The motor comes out tomorrow- it’s going to Nic and Steph for the Bavaria build. Webb is taking the suspension for his car. The wheels will go into storage until another day, down the road when I feel like a car is worthy of following up Rusty’s footsteps.
I’m depressed over this. Best car I’ve ever owned. Hand down.
There’s a constant joke going on among friends that I owe this car for everything its done for me… and its true.”
