These are called "Rat Rods"

Guys will take great pains on the engine running gear and breaks.

Then go for the most rustiest, horrible piece of crap for a body they can conjure up.

Takes a lot of skill to conjure up one of these monsters.

A full up restoration takes a lot more time, effort and especially MONEY !!!

Well I guess the car guys had to out do the bike guys.
Btw, in the day a rat ride was some guy piecing a ride together and keeping it running for little money and time.
Today it's some guy spending a lot of time and money to get the look.
Interesting but not the same.

Rat rods are awesome. I don't know what is more cool, the Evinrude/Johnson outboard cowl for an intake or twin spittoon velocity stacks. Awesome...

@ scott s.....your missing the point of a rat rod......Hot Rods are shinny with billet alum crap plastered all over it. Owned by rich boys who pay guys like me to make them that way.
Rats are created and built by their owners as a tribute to the days when we as kids tossed together any thing we could find in a junkyard.

Guess you had to be there to understand.

"these Rat Rods" are as much a statement of art as any car can be

We were big into what is known as a sleeper. It's kinda one of those forgotten era's. Kinda started the wheel well tubbing thing and hiding stuff. Take a Original Falcon or a Toy car and Hide everything including the Noise ! Complete rework of the Front fender wells to hide what was behind the tin. Took for ever.

Stuck every dime we had into the Motor on your great grama's going to church car and made it look that way intentionally. Even put stupid grandma stuff in the rear window and on the antenna. Poofy Lot colors

Dry Sump's - roller cranks - roller rockers- Complete suspension and Trans w/ cages all the way to the pumpkin. Made sound like a whisper.

After the money was exchanged and held by the Banker you could trust playing Gomer Pyle.

You rolled up to the line and opened your waste gates.
It was stupid fun !

We got so bad the City had water trucks running on the week end's

Least a full tank of Ethyl every Friday and Saturday Nite
