Features Brenda's Ranch Wagon get's a little press

    We got a email this morning from the Cherokee One Feather Newspaper after they did a short interview with Brenda Saturday.

    Brenda Berry, of Anderson, S.C., was wiping down a car she has been attached to since childhood during an event at the Cherokee Indian Fairgrounds on Saturday, Oct. 16. She was caring for her 1954 Ford Ranch Wagon at the Cruise the Smokies Rod Run hosted by the Cherokee Rodders.

    “This car has been my car my whole life,” she said. “My grandmother bought it brand new. She owned a florist and this was her delivery vehicle.”

    The vehicle then went to Brenda’s father who used it for years and then eventually to her. When she received it, the condition had declined. “The floors had rusted out. It had seen some hard days.”

    It was quite a project to get the wagon back in good condition. “It took nine years and 107 patch panels and this is the end result.” By SCOTT MCKIE B.P.
