Some car shows are like meat markets. In these beauty pageants of the automotive world, hot bodies and shiny rims are ogled while whatâs on the inside is often taken for granted. Last weekendâs Carolina Open Car Classic at Boone Hall was a welcome departure from the usual format, with car aficionados gleefully lifting up their hoods and revving their engines for anyone who asked. The assortment of vehicles ranged from the newer, like the souped-up Roush Mustang, to the truly antique, like a rickety old Model T Ford. Even the lone stock car showed its muscle as 16-year-old aspiring racer Hunter Bledsoe kicked up some dirt spinning doughnuts. Regardless of make, model, or year, almost every car had a great testosterone-infused love story behind it. And thatâs really what cars are all about: It all comes down to the passion behind the wheel.
