Here's to hoping they stay gold at the very least. Glad I'm not the only person who sees it.

Rat rodders: its not the car for most of them its a Life style!!! Influenced by Todays "Teddyboy" Greaser culture from Europe and mixed with our Rockabilly greaser Music style, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Eddy Cochren, ETC And hot rod cars like my fathers of years long gone They used to frequent my shop regularly and scare the PANTS off the old ladies in my neighborhood because of their look ( OLD SKOOL GREASER, ROCK AND ROLE)LOL! Many are best friends! Its comparable to the influence old Biker Movies Had on the BIKER life style leading all the way to today's Bikers!! I'm OLD SKOOL Greaser And like building my cars OLD SKOOL! But Im not a RATrodder LOL. But they are a GREAT bunch!! And the movement is growing! I posted 2 examples from u tube TEDDYBOYS AND RATRODDERS they remind me of the 50s and early 60s in the USA ( MY YOUTH in JR HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL) I loved those years of my life you young guys really missed some by gone great years!!! The car shows and cruises we have now are the legacy (left to us by guys like my father) of cruises and shows of the 50s & 60s

the greaser look. Slick hair, dark jeans cuffed. Something out of the 50's it seems. If you haven't seen the outsiders go get it. It's also a movie with Ralph Macheo, Rob Lowe, and Matt Dillon.

Hey Jay.. We talked at Little Anthony's show yesterday..I had the Jaguar. Need to work on Stude mill..

I agree..but then I really do not see much rat rod "Kulture" or many real rat rods here. Mostly young guys building as they can afford..
If it's a safe built car..I have no problem with it. I do not like the comic book rats..but people grow up..maybe that's all it is..

The Health of the Hobby here seems great and growing..

Once the weather is decent here, there is someplace to go cruise every night of the week. I see a little bit of everything from new to junkers. I haven't recently run across any of the snobs who put down cars. It got bad here a number of years ago and actually kept me from going to shows. I have truly hand built 98% of my car and worked on a number of others. I don't put down anything anybodies builds. I may not like their style but I can appreciate the hard work and admiration you get for building it with your own two hands. My car is no gem but it looks fine from behind the steering wheel for me ! My son and and a number of his friends like old cars. My son drives a rusty 74 Chevy Vega Notchback to school and he gets a bunch of crap for it as in our town we have a well to do bunch of kids whos parents buy them newer cars than I would by for myself. My son is looking for something older. He actually wants a 58 Chevy. Our family is all about the hot rod. My brother has a LS powered 75 Nova and my dad has a 69 Vette and a 2001 Z28. It's all his fault ! He is an original hot rodder with a wealth of backyard know how. It was cool to see him and my son wrenching on the 265 my dad pulled out of his 55 Chevy in 1960 which I now have on my engine stand !

Agreed. I do enjoy some of the creativity of the rat builders. It seems to me that locally many of the "patina" cars and rat rods are in the hands of older guys than I would expect.

See you at the next show! :-)~
