I have to chuckle about this thread. My kid brother, now 60 years young, special ordered a 67 Dart muscle car and drove it for years. When he retired it to the salvage yard, it had more tire changes than oil changes. It would make a perfect rat rod today if he had not pulled the hemi before it went to the salvage yard. It had not had an interior for years and the only seat in the house was a beat up, broken down bucket seat out of something he scrounged. He drove the car to and from work and almost ever light was a drag for him. He owned a Super Bird in this time frame. Got it cheap because the first owner could never beat his beat up Dart. Wonder if he could have been an original rat rodder? Nah, the car was too new to even be considered a hot rod, even when it was introduced to the crusher.
