We have had a few discussions on the subject of "rat rods". However you define it, it generally is a positive term. This truck is my favorite of any I've seen so far- gorgeous!! The builder had the foresight to not paint it; and neither would I. I'd love to drive that just as it is![8D] All it needs is some box steps made, and a cover over the rear, and it's perfect (to me;)).

Check it out:

Another note: When I looked at the girl in one picture I pictured her posing for that shot, then immediately brushing her fingers agressively together while making a big scowl and saying "EWW!":D

I kinda like that truck too. It would like nice in flat black and a set of the salt flat wheels or even Moon Disc wheel covers.

needs some original style taillights, too. Other than that, hard to find nits to pick, although you'd probably want to put some kind of bed floor in eventually. (otherwise I'd have a hard time justifying it as "practical" <G>)

I like it.
It looks like the rear fender on one side is the same rear fender on the other side just turned. What do you think?
