    RAT RODS-RAT BIKES any body else here have one?

    There is no denying it I like rat rods and bikes...shiney paint is not my thing, I like unrestored stuff. I have what I think is a rat 4by 1960 chevy, the body is all original but the drivetrain is a hodge podge of stuff, it has a 1969 frame, 73 camaro engine,85 front and rear ends,72 chevy trans and t-case, steering box out of a 77 chev truck. I drive this every day as my work truck. so I know some of you here have seen pictures of this but I have done a few upgrades lately. Like 900-16 sta superlug tires and purple horney side pipes. I know this is not most peoples cup of tea but I like it a lot so any body else have one? post a picture I would like to see them.20151030_164752.jpg20151030_164815.jpg

    Cool truck. I have always loved that body style. One of my first 4-wheeled vehicles was a '65 Chevy stepside with I6 and three on the tree.

    Very nice roadkill, I am a fan of your work.. My first truck was a '62 and I loved the forward canted "A"-pillar. Mine had the rare full width rear window.

    Gorgeous. I love ratted out stuff myself. And that is also my favorite body style. Sweet, sweet, sweet.

    Advertise the new finds for sale in Reno around Hot August Nights hot rod festival. Folks might go nuts over even a clapped out rusty panel delivery. I see things like this for sale for stupid high prices.

    I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do with this rat.

    GPz front end, Messy welded up straight pipe exhaust, crazy knobs on back, And just primer on the tank.
    Runs and digs in the sand better than you would expect. So do I go all out and "scramblerize" it?
    My heart sayes go for it, my pocketbook says part it out to needy vision riders.
