So don't move this post to the "Definition of a rat rod post" thank you?

 

When I saw this car on line i thought it looked better that most and was wondering what others though? Ain't lookin' fer no definition here. :(

 

It's all rat rod discussion. Same disagreements, same inability to define them, same opinions of them on both sides.

I brought  something like this up a while ago and it still stirs emotions up. i have not gone thru this entire post but I don't get them, can appreciate the time and effort, just do not get all that time and effort to make something look like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH!

Oh boy, a tribute to a bunch of yuppies pretending to be rednecks for a fake TV show. I think hotrodding has hit a new low.

The automotive equivalent of this...

WTF ???  That looks like one of those e-mails that lull you into a false sense of security until, suddenly, someone with a mask of some sort or something else meant to be frightening pops up, accompanied by a loud snarl or some other noise.  Man, that's just freaky.

 

A rat rod is a connecting rod from a 396/400/427/454 Chevy motor.  No?
