Rutledge Wood is truly car-obsessed and has been since an early age. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, he learned from his father the business of buying, restoring and selling new and old vehicles. Rutledge has owned over 55 cars and trucks ranging from a Volkswagen Rabbit pickup truck, to Hondas, Chevys, a 1966 VW Double Cab, a 68 Dodge Charger that was Kyle Petty’s high school ride, a Buick Roadmaster Wagon, even an obscure 1975 Bricklin SV-1. But none hold as special of a place as the 1953 Plymouth Suburban Wagon given to him by The King himself, Richard Petty. When asked what the one thing every car he owns has to have, Rutledge answered: "The perfect exhaust note." As an Ambassador to MagnaFlow, Rutledge achieves the perfect exhaust note by featuring a MagnaFlow exhaust system on every vehicle he owns.
