Rat Rods

Anyone else a fan of them? I wouldn't mind having one of these in my garage as a 3rd car

I like looking at them, I like the creativity of the builders and the craftsmanship (on some). But I don’t want one, and I don’t really see the point of buying one. They are really a way of showing off what you can do.

I would love a Rat Rod.

Not a traditional one though, thinking like a car from the 60's, 65 Impala perhaps
