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.
This 68 Camaro is designed and custom built by Jim Johnson of Jim’s Body & Paint in Geneva ,Iowa.
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.
He promised me the bike ran when I purchased it. (We all know how that tends to go.) I got it home and put in a new battery and fresh fuel,well, the bike fired right up, to my disbelief.
This thing is a never ending project and that’s fine by me, as long as I’m doing something to it, I’ll never get tired of it or get bored with it.
