"Officer, it’s not what it looks like! I did not steal this car; that’s my key! Why are you getting out your taser?!" For no practical purpose at all, I wanted to see if I could make a screwdriver into a car key. What fun it would be to impersonate the look of a stolen car with a screwdriver jammed into the ignition!
There's a dark corner of the automotive car buff world that isn't into shiny, polished, built to the hilt projects. These select, very interesting personalities are instead into those extremely unique, history vehicles that show their age. Lots of age. Rust is typically one of the primary colors of these vintage junkyard dogs.
