Here's a few more shots of that one - these are from this year's Grand National Roadster Show and this was parked outside the "Suede Palace"

While I am neither excited about it nor am I turned off.... it does contain some very cool bits if one takes the time to examine it.
Won't go into too much details since I wrote an article about this very thing for MCM and it prob. won't be published till next year :lol:

But... the front wheels are for me a bit too much. The exhaust pipes and engine plumbing are perfect but it is NOT a rat rod in my opinion. Too well assembled and too cleanly done. A lott'a thought went into it and it's a bit over the top... but cool none the less. More like a "theme rod" than anything else assembled in a nice traditional style.

I don't consider it a rat rod.This thing is clean enough to eat off of.It is cool looking.Kinda reminds me of those radio shack rc cars,that hits the wall and flips over and goes the other way.

I'm torn on this one. I'm 50/50 on rat rods. I like some of them and I like the look of this one. One the other hand I think they ruined 2 good trucks. I love the military 6x6 trucks so I hate one was ruined but in the same breath I think its what draws me too this one. I do like it over all and thanks for sharing it!

Man, I'm not a fan of the rattiness to n'th degree that some of the extreme ratrods go for. No front brakes, metal grating or wooden plank floorboards etc. But a well built unique rod like this one? Oh hell yeah. This looks like it was built with whatever was on hand. And if that means a chevy engine, by all means. That's what hot rodding is all about.

Brian, I just can't get excited over a 1944 Dodge WC 62 troop carrier with a badly rotted 60 year old body....this one is over the top...I think the exhaust is what really makes it unique!!

I agree with Jairus--it's more a theme build than a rat rod. Nevertheless, I don't get tired of seeing builds like this all over the country.

There are some vehicles that can double as rods and WW3 vehicles. Both are in my world.

Why? You could just put a rock on the gas and let it go by itself. Same end result... except you don't die at the end! Sounds like a win-win proposition to me. :(
