This one started out a pure rat rod, 8yrs ago,  some how it morphed into this quassia Rat. It was one of those builds that just.....well one you can never quite figure out how to get all the bits to work together. But once I got the wheels/tire's sorted, the rest fell into place. The spider is a real dried out specimen, I think it was originally a Brown Recluse. Once dried I sprayed it with few coats of Pledge, then Molotow Chrome and a dusting of green. White walls are painted on with enamel, rear tire's are 1/20 Tamiya F1, rims are cast from a Revell Drag kit. 

Thanks for checking it out.

Great looking build. I like looking at the different components and trying to figure out were they came from. That engine is the biggest 4 cylinder I have ever seen. I like the blower set up on it.

Thank you. It's actually a Rolls 6 cylinder, the two centre ports are paired up. Never thought the air box could be a blower of sorts.

Wow this looks awesome! Great creativity and even better execution. How'd you get the headlights to look like they are lit?  

Thanks, the lights are reflecting the photo booth lights.

The name that just popped into my head when I saw it:

"Death Rattle"

Great name for a rat rod.

Cool idea, it looks great. I think it is very Rat-Rod, even with no rust.

Thanks for checking it out.

Very,  very cool. Kinda rat-rod meets steampunk. I really dig the creativity.

Thanks, never thought of it that way.
