The old super as Randy found it. On the trailer, tires on, vegetation growing around and through the chassis.
|Makes a pretty nice planter! The perfect gift for that supermodifed fan in your family.
|A tree literally growing up through the trailer and chassis.
|Randy couldn't believe when he cut the growth back and the tires were in great shape.
|Ah, sweet success. After cutting his way in, Randy gets a shot at sitting in the old super.
