Rodney Reisdorph is really into vintage cars.
How can we tell? The 20-year-old man has been loving refurbishing his 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline sedan since high school.
“I had the coolest ride of anybody at East High School,” Reisdorph said with a big grin.
Another way we can tell he’s really into vintage cars?
Not only does Reisdorph drive a ’51 Chevy Fleetline, he has the same exact model tattooed on his stomach.
Perhaps, this obsession with mid-20th century automobiles runs in Reisdorph’s family.
His dad — also named Rodney Reisdorph — is the proud owner of a 1953 Chevy 210, which Reisdorph, the elder, has also spent years restoring.
“I got my son into cars,” Reisdorph, the dad, explained. “And my family was also into cars.”
What better way to show off cool vintage rides than with a car show?
Both Reisdorphs are involved with the seventh annual Scene of the Crash Rockabilly/Psychobilly Car Show, which will take place July 16 and 17 at the Dakota/Thurston County Fairgrounds, 1527 Stable Drive.
In addition to showing off Post-WWII era autos, Scene of the Crash will offer mini bike rides, hot rod dirt drags, kid activities and a Bettie Page-style pin-up contest, plus live music by the Krank Daddies, StrawBilly and Big Red Rawkit Riot for your rockabilly enjoyment.
