    Rat rods

     



    ive been into rat rods along time manged to be in some very heated arguements about this. thing is i still like them but i now relize that if it wasnt for rat rods i wouldnt be building other hot rods now and i wouldnt be buying a large amount of products from from tire vendors parts vender i wouldnt have a hemi with injection i wouldnt of bought 57 buick driver point of all this is people have to start somewhere and if its rat rods so be it if its a contour thats great but in the end where all about the same thing CARS. pretty hard to argue with that

    the biggest issues with ratrods, is the saftey end.. but you have visible disc brakes on the front.. so you pretty much got that covered...

    The buick isn't a ratrod.. nice car
    You don't know what you've got til it's gone

    Anyone, who has such a narrow view, and can only see one segment of the wide automotive world, is missing out on a lot of real good info, and idea's that are provided. Oh well, their problem. Life is short, enjoy what you have. I'm like you, I go for a lot of different styles and era's. Sniper

    Post it up gasser. I'll be on your side this time around, as I've grown quite fond of rat rods lately if they have sound steering and brakes of course.

    Nope, never been to North Dakota. Dave Severson lives there and I may get to visit him in the spring next year. Maybe we can meet up if it happens. Only time I've been in Minnesota was doin' 65 MPH through there on the way to Wisconsin for the summer.
