When I think of Rat Rod I think a lot about the Rockabilly scene. Here is a cool site to check out www.zombiehotrodwear.com

Check out the third ride from the bottom! recognize it?

My next project is going to be a Rat Rod of some sort. As soon as I get a shop built!

what would you guys think about a '77 dodge pickup, with a slant 6? A friend of mine found it in the backyard of a house that his old man purchased, and he's offering it to me for $50. It's in barely running condition...it sat for about 14 years, and the motor was frozen up, until he poured some oil down inside of it...It now starts and runs reasonably well. it's got a little bit of rust, but it's all there. Also, it has the bonus of a straight pipe. Sound like a rat to you?

That Pontiac was a father/son project. My son sold it last year to get a down payment on a home since he recently got married, inherited a 4yr old daughter and just had a son. Better use of assets at this time. Plus it was mostly a father project - he never really got into the rodding thing.

I like the idea of building traditional style hotrods backyard built using your head instead of your wallet.But the trendyness of the actual"ratrod"thing gets to me.
But the old school is definetly cooler,no mail order this and that or a soa dn so billet mounting kit etc.......Evan a SBC isn't so plain when its got a crossram or dual quads or 6 dueces or 4 or evan 3.Its not"Should I get the performer or performer rpm??".Or"What heads did you order from summit??"its just cooler.

I recently started the body work on my 53 and found bondo Everywhere!! The entire top above the drip rails for about 2" inward was solid bondo. A friend came by with his 55 Chevy rat and the future of the Bondo rod came about. I'm having a blast with it. I got a ton of $hi* about the cheesy hub caps so there gone. Been hanging out with the Flat Black crowd and I'm impressed. No talk of how much $$$ I have in my car So it must be better than yours, just a bunch of cool guys that want to have the most fun for the least amount of money. They trade $$$ for creativity, hard work and imagination.

That looks good. I like the primer paint with scallops. You did the right thing by 86-ing the hubcaps. It's kind of amusing how rat rods are looked down upon (even though they're cool to many folks) yet they too can be cheapened beyond salvation by some tacky generic hubcaps. What did you put in their place? I hope you're not running around town with your nuts showing!
