No matter your thought on what a rat is, or is not, this build deserves respect. It is a labor of love and a well put together piece of machinery.
had the parts just sitting in my back yard for years. We had a brainstorm one day and got a tape measure out and started measuring things, did up some sketches and cut up a scale model to see if I liked it. Showed it to a client and he liked the idea.
It has almost been a year. Ten months really, since this idea became something tangible. Since I acted upon my ideas and began to go out and “do something” with it.

Most cars and trucks there were pre 1970, however, there was definitely a presence for later models and they all seemed to show well.
We tried to make it like a trip, so, you could see what we saw, but, you have to remember, we are not paid professionals, we do this because we enjoy it, so, no critiquing my skills. lol.
