(Words and photos by Doug Gregory) – The 2016 Cynthiana Rod Run drew nearly as many cars as it did in 2015 and that’s a pretty good feat when you consider two things… One the heat wave we were having kept a lot of folks away. Two, the area’s largest employer was running production through the weekend so folks who would normally bring their rides out, couldn’t. Still it was a great turnout. We ran around chasing the sun and shadows trying to get good shots. We missed plenty of cars that we’d decided we couldn’t get a photo of and would return later only to find they’d left when we returned. It happens and we roll with it.
The lead off photo is of the recently-finished Walking Dead mural. We’ve told you all about the ties the popular show has with this community in Central Kentucky. It was a blank canvas and I’d say the artist did a pretty fair job. It’s all done with rattle cans too. A few cars to mention in this one:
Drool-worthy square-body K20 Scottsdale. That thing was nice.
The Red Mercury sled. It had more customizations than I could count. Really clean piece.
The Ford COE had great stance and was not over-done like many that I’ve seen lately. Great hauler.
