the worst looking rat rod car i have ever seen

Discussion in 'THE OTHER TALK' started by karfer67, Apr 9, 2010.

  1. Ok I must have missed this, The S-10 that started this thread is actually kinda cool. Would be great with some old-school Harley fenders with the teardrop tail lights. That black one is actually a late 80's early 90's Thunderbird with an "Easy Rods" kit on it. A buddy of mine used to have one of their kits for a T-bird that he modded onto a Lincoln Continental. (Same structure as the T-bird but longer) Looked pretty sweet actually.

    As far as that VW Rabbit goes as a VW Rabbit owner I am appalled, but fascinated. I hate it, but at the same time I like it. It's butchered from everything that it is supposed to be but yet it somehow grabs my attention and won't let go. Looks like a blast to drive though.

    And that rusty BMW is AWESOME! Almost makes me want to sandblast my VW and leave it outside for a few months to "Patina"

    I feel the same about that s10. It's ugly but awesome. I have a later picture of it. I'll try to get it up here.
    That is a sweet rusted BMW!

    Is that rat with the gullwing doors that was posted earlier. I took this pic at the Swamp Stomp last year. A rat rod show! This guy is really a great guy. Crab is what they call him.

    I love rat rods, including the europeans like that BMW, but this is one of the worst I´ve seen:

    Personally I prefer something more like this. Not exactly a rat, but close!

    I agree! Hadn't thought of it that way. Wouldn't you love to have that one in your garage? 8) It was on ebay about a year ago & sold for about 40 grand though! :shock:
     
  18. I just classify that as a "Clean rat". Just because it's not rusted doesn't mean it doesn't have rat flavor.
