    Yeah, playing football in the road is sad and also really dangerous!

    In my trail building and ski are management realm there are people with fancy pickup trucks who can't get them dirty or try something stupid off road that will cost them $1000s to fix. At same time there are a few of us who do more off-roading and real work with our station wagons and minivans.

    The most inane in this pickup truck as alter ego is purposely making your carries nothing pickup have the back sag or more black exhaust come out the pipe. Hard for me to get because I grew up in a life where the goal was not have to have a crummy ride in a pickup and to make your diesels run as best and clean as you can.

    It's safe to say my wagon is a relic'd car but that took 8 years of trail building, ski area operations, and actually driving off road 2-7 times a week.

    Yea, it is a thing. I like the look of a little tattered vehicle with good solid mechanics underneath. I've lived in some rough areas and the prettier your car is the more chance you have of getting it broken into.

    I understand the actual patina, fading and oxidization... not my thing but I get it... but when they start sanding the paint off and it looks poorly sanded, finger sanded and not feathered out they look like an unfinished paint job someone started... sandpaper does not create patina and is not a relic finish on cars or guitars.

    They weren’t playing in the road. They were players on the team who didn’t play and as we walked to the practice field we crossed a road and that’s where they scuffed them.

    Maybe not "relics" like in the guitar world, but here is some actual junk I drove around in.
    '69 Squareback with "solid" floors.

    '67 Beetle with mere suggestions of a floor.
