i really really hate the term ratrod.
however i cannot afford a beautiful car like this.
so i found a bunch of "left overs" and tackled my GARAGE BUILT HOTROD.
cutting up a beautiful car is a shame! if you really want what they call a ratrod, find a body to your liking and build it from the ground up.
then you can tell people that you built it, and you didnt tear apart a piece of vintage steel to make somthing, just because you wanted to.
here is a before and current picture of what less experienced people call a "ratrod"
