Desert Fabrat

Hello everyone this is the Desert Fab Rat.
I live out in the Mohave desert and dig up parts and pieces to re-construct rat rods or whatever you would like to call them.
I am a fabricator by trade.
One of my latest projects was helping my son bring back to life a 55 chevy from the LA Street Racing Days of Big Willie Robinson era.
I am currently building a 31 ford model A that is half rat and half hot rod, or a Hot Rat
Have some other projects in the works.
Always looking for new ideas
Once I find out how to post pics on this board I can post some of my work.
I have worked on some pretty neat stuff and have done some one of a kind items, along with some other metal work
I also teach metal fab and currently trying to help one of the local community colleges start a hand fab class
So drop me a line.
Desert-Fabrat

If they're anything like his post (E9AE Boss), they're all in his mind.

Boy, those were the days !
Altered wheelbase cars were great to watch. A friend of mine had an altered wheelbase Dodge on the street in Illinois in the late 60's.
Nobody would ride with him because of the workmanship.. But it looked cool !

I was reading your other post. Interesting combo you have there. I'm not a Ford guy so I can't add anything to that thread. Show them the pictures when you can. Let's see where it goes from there.
