A few decades ago, car clubs ruled the roads as local teenagers congregate around their mutual love for automobiles. While we’re not ready to declare the car club dead, there has been a definite drop off in car club participation all around the country. But there are still those who celebrate their affection for the car but gathering up their best buds and hitting the road for a cross-country journey of driving and enjoyment.
This video comes to us courtesy of the Road Devils, a group of custom car guys with chapters across whole swaths of the U.S. Several of their members set out for the Cash Bash in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and they brought their video cameras with them.
The Cash Bash is an annual celebration of the life and music of Johnny Cash, and it is always held on his birthday; February 26th. Johnny Cash sang some great car songs. Perhaps the most memorable is “One Piece At A Time”, a song about an assembly line worker who took home one piece of the car per day, building himself the entire car one piece at a time.
The Road Devils made this video to document their journey to the Cash Bash, and they have some awesome rides along with them. Among the vehicles we saw were a mid-60’s Ford Fairlane, two rat rods, and an orange hot rod. It looks like a fun-filled journey, and it’s on our list of road trips now. Maybe we’ll call up the Road Devils and see if we can tag along?
