I don't remember asking anyones opinion of the term "rat rod". This is my first time using hotrodders.com and if this is an example of the mentality I'm sorry I bothered. I happen to be 71 years old & i built hot rods & customs & stock cars, nitro drag bikes & midgets before you were even born. Who in the hell are you any how? I know George Barris, I knew big daddy Roth, the Granatelli bros. Bill Von Esser, Don Garlits, Chris Karamasines, Roger Ward & many others whose names you wouldn't even know because you're a ******** punk! Ask your Grandfather, he'll tell you although I doubt if youu would even listen. rat rod rat rod RAT ROD RAT ROD, I KIND OF LIKE THAT TERM. GFY
