Charlie and I went to Pottsville (just north of Merlin) on Saturday for the Eighth Annual Rat Rod-o-Rama
If you don't know what a Rat Rod is, it's a hot rod that's mechanically sound...
...but cosmetically challenged.
Some might say it's a hot rod that's not finished, but the true rat rodder knows it's never going
to be finished.
Interior decoration is generally an afterthought...
...or maybe, in some cases, an obsession.
The general idea is to make do with what's at hand.
Here's a starter kit...
(Not sure I'd trust that spare.)
... and the price is certainly right.
"Runs and drives great."
That's what counts!
You could get started for a lot less.
Style, after all, is what counts.
Good door art is important.
Although some more resembles nose art.
It's very important when you're stitching all this together...
...to ensure that your vehicle is not under-powered.
