Up the road a ways, on S.C. 21 between Blythewood and Ridgeway, is place of uncanny curiousness. I have passed by it more times than I can count, and finally, on a recent day, I decided it was the day to stop and see what was behind a sign by the side of the road which sported most of a 1932 Chevrolet coupe on the top half and the words, “Branham’s PRECIOUS METALS – We Find Vintage Iron” on the bottom half. Boy howdy was I glad I hit the brakes.
