Reformed Rust

An interesting trend I have noticed at local car shows is painting old cars to look like they are rusted without actually being rusted. My favorites are painted teal with reddish brown edges.

It’s really a fascinating technique. If you look closely, you can see layers upon layers of purples, reds, oranges, and browns. Even the teal has multiple layers of darker and lighter shades.

This particular truck even tricked out the interior entirely in denim! You can see the jeans pockets on the seats and the roof.

Whether you think rust is the worst thing ever or a really cool look, the amount of time and effort that people invest in these pretend-rust cars calls for respect. It’s truly an impressive art.
