Omg, look at how close that battery is to the upper right link on the rear I would hate to be around that if it popped out of place and smacked right into the battery Uh oh, from the looks of it, it doesn't have front brakes Centerline where are you??!? Otherwise, pretty unique looking rod.

Killer tro-kay Nicely done. Wish it had front brakes though. It wouldn't be hard to put some on.

Yep. It as rotors but no calipers. Just how stupid can some people be? Other than that it does have some interesting, well kind of, engineering. I think this is a perfect example of someone building a rod with the express purpose of selling it for big bucks. It's amazing how much people will pay to follow a FAD, no matter how stupid it is.....

I agree about the brakes, but it does say the car is "Unfinished"

Just part of a smart marketing ploy. Ever here of a finished rat rod? However I guess we could give the seller the benefit of the doubt.....

::Notachainer enters thread:: WHAT?!?!? I'm tired of ur s$^# Centerline, you're just jealous of rat rods! You're just mad cuz it won an award and yours didn't!! I'm an experienced rodder and the rear brakes can do 100% of the braking no problem!! Long live the HAMB!!!!! Heehee, but good point about seeing a "finished" rat rod. I wonder how long that can go without rusting or how many times a day that guy has to sand down the car

That is cool. Who cares if it doesn't front brakes as long as you are not in front of him going down the road? That has some real cool factor there, except for the... Airbags? It's a rat rod, bags are for groceries...

I could build something like that myself, why should I spend that kind of money when I could make something a little different and have as much cool factor with working fron brakes. (another reason why I like being a machinist, I can make anything!)

Potential

Not for >$12 grand, but it does have the potential with a little (read as whole lot?) of TLC and about a year of steady work to be a real nice, off beat rod.
1 Trash the front end for a Magnum or similar front axle with 4 bar - or possibly a TCI or Heidts IFS
2 Put a set of Wilwood brakes on it
3 Install an interior
4 Move the battery
5 Paint (epoxy if you like the primer look, if nothing else)
6 Install some real tail lights
7 Trash the ace of spade BS
8 Build/buy a safe gas tank
9 Get rid of the other hokey crap
10 Needs a good set of wheels and tires
etc, etc, etc

Then it might be a great rod, not another POS that is following the latest trends and fads.

Quite frankly, I along with most of my friends wont even spend the time at a show to look at a car like this

I don't put a lot of confidence in cars just because they win awards at shows. I know of a Plymouth PU that has one of the worst paint jobs I have seen. The body work is even worse. That truck has gotten awards at shows because he is in with the club.

If that was built by a professional, my only question is what his profession is. That thing could have alot of potential. Then again, the same could be said about a $500 T-bucket body.

I like this rod. Like others said it has potential, but because of all the fads, is why the thing is so popular.
Personally, I like the styling point of veiw on this one. Its different than most and has some unique things. But personally, Id put a good paint job on it and put somewhat of an interior in it. But thats just me

Is it just me or is this Rat Rod thing headed for a very ugly conclusion. Some of these Death Traps I have seen are ripe for "anti-Hot Rod" legislation.

Having built both my cars, a '31 Ford Sedan and a '27 Ford Roadster Pickup, both are nostaligic fenderless Hot Rods, and not Rat Rods.

Back when the Rat Rod "fad" started it was about buidling quality cars from original 30's - 50's parts. It has morphed into the building of Cartoon Cars, many of which should not be street driven.

It is just a matter of time until one of these Death Traps kills some political figure, or a member of his/her family, and the legislation against home made vehicles will kick in.
