RAT RATTLE AND ROLL
This is my new toy. It is a'31 Ford pickup with a 350 Chevy engine and turbo 350 automatic transmission. Built "Ford Tuff" using Chevy stuff!
This is a "Ratrod". Definition: A rat rod is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates (or exaggerates) the early hot rods of the 40s, 50s, and 60s.The rat rod is the visualization of the idea of function over form. Rat rods are meant to be driven, not shown off. Sometimes the customization will include using spare parts, or parts from another car altogether.(Wikipedia)
