Now I went and did it. Looks like I need to start doing a SuperFly series – too many interesting rides out there, and now I have the flying bug. Speaking of a flying bug…up next: a series of flying VW vans. Easy pickings in my Berkeley hood.
Rat Rods: Originally a counter-reaction to the high-priced “customs” and typical hot rods, many of which were seldom driven and served only a decorative purpose. The rat rod’s inception signified a throwback to the hot rods of the earlier days of hot-rod culture—built according to the owner’s abilities and with the intention of being driven. Rat rods are meant to loosely imitate, in both form and function, the “traditional” hot rods of the era. Biker, greaser, rockabilly, psychobilly, and punk sub-cultures are often cited as influences that shaped rat rodding. Via Wikipedia
