    anyone into rat rods?

    i dont know much about them, but there is a guy in town that has an old rat rob pick up truck and it is pretty sick. is something like that expensive? i know expensive is relative when dealing with any vehicle, but seems like you could pick up a junk vintage car cheap, and rat it out on your own, doesnt seem to be anything to them. if anyone on here has a rat rod post pics!!

    theyre old hot rods i guess, that look like piles of shit on purpose but are actually really nice. like people will paint them to look like they have some rust, or paint is coming off. usually they will have an old shop name on the doors that is barely readable, but they are basically hot rods - just a different look.

    i personally like the trucks better, i think they look really cool and could be fun to build. doesnt seem like there is anything to 'em.
