This BMW rose from the ashes (literally) to arrive on the SEMA show floor (pictures)
Rusty Slammington is a 1985 BMW 535i that's been reimagined as an homage to vintage FIA Group 5 racing. What you see is the result of four years of hard work after the car was nearly lost to a garage fire.
Rust is the signature patina of the car's owner, Mike Burroughs. Before the fire, Burroughs concocted his own personal method of creating this look, which involved rubbing motor oil into the exposed body panels.
