Old Ford Phaeton’s are super cool and super rare. It was impossible to not add this one to the list when i saw it!

Tragedy On The Way To Shades Of The Past Rod Run

I wanted to take a second to share this story and say that our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends involved in all this, the hot rod community is a tight group and its always sad to loose one of our own. Be careful out there when enjoying the cars, you never know what lies around the next turn.

 

WLOS NEWS STORY

BUNCOMBE COUNTY, N.C. — One person died on Thursday after a rollover wreck on I-40 near the I-26 interchange.

Two people were taken to the hospital from the scene, and Donald Frye, 68, later died from his injuries at the hospital.

The rollover wreck on I-40 westbound near mile marker 46 backed up traffic for more than an hour around 11:30 a.m.

The Asheville Police Department will continue to investigate.
