RAT ROD Information

I have a friend that just developed a interest in Rat Rods. Is there a website, picture page or any source for info on Rat Rods? I heard that there was a Rat Rod Nationals in Indianapolis this summer but I must have slept through it...... THANKS.... DAVE

Ok, here are 3 sites that deal with these type of cars. Tell your friend not to ask any ignorant questions about "rat rods" or even mention the name, cause people there will get offended or make fun of him.
www.olskoolrodz.com (click on forums)
www.jalopyjournal.com (click on HAMB)
www.ruffrodders.com
Theres also some magazines he can buy
Ol Skool Rodz

I think they're called "Primer Nationals" and you can view their website here
www.primernationals.com
And then there are these "rat rod" shows
http://www.hunnertcarpileup.com/main.php
http://www.vivalasvegas.net/

"Rat rods" usually go together with the "rockabilly" culture. Kind of a complicated thing, they're all about they're "old school culture".

I think the "purists" want you to call them "traditional" hot rods.
