I met a local guy here in Twin Falls and he allowed me to snap a few pictures of his Rhoades Car. He did not want to be identified but told me how he rides his Rhoades Car around town year round. In fact he has even ridden his Rhoades Car to Shoshone and back! According to Google maps that is 26.2 miles there. He rode the distance of a marathon in his Rhodes Car and then another on his way back!
