Rusty Slammington, the Supra-powered, rust-coated, slammed BMW street rod that had a following in the world of stanced cars was destroyed Friday night in a fire at its owner's garage.
No one was injured in the blaze at owner Mike Burroughs' garage Sunday night, but Rusty was a total loss. It's not clear yet how the fire started. Born from a wrecked 5-series, Rusty was transformed over several months into the epitome of a rat rod, from its dirty diesel oil-rubbed exterior to the toggle-switch interior. Burroughs posted a brief snippet of Rusty's Viking burial.
