It's criminal, that's what it is.
Unless it's a WIP then it'll be nice when it's finished.

Love the billet rims on the front with the old centres. You could be right about the trend though, it's something a little bit different and we all know how a lot of people want to be different the same??

I'm hoping it's been rescued and the shiny parts show the start of it's transformation from rat to show winner.

Lol, sounds like old farts at the RSL in here! The same things were said when rats got popular.

No prizes for guessing I love it! It's kind of steampunk-ish.

The subject vehicle is doing what the creator wanted........causing it to be notice and discussed, and therefore giving him/her some fame.
He/She couldn't be serious....could he/she??? dunno scratch nah

I like it...

Cool conversion that push the envelope always create a stir with some people (eg. RB26 in a mustang.)

It might not be that drivable but it's different and getting attention.

Rat rods are just lazy. They show no skill in any way, shape or form. They are the automotive equivalent of a 90 yr old hooker wearing a school girls uniform.
