Well, another year has gone by and we have had some milestones happen. This has been a good year for us, so, in an effort to recap what has been happening, let’s look back at last years review.
Once I had a product I believed in, at a price I felt is better suited to people like me, we ordered some. A LOT of hose and A LOT of fittings – probably too much but we believed so strongly that there is an opportunity for a High Quality PTFE braided hose in the market with awesome looking AN fittings that we committed to taking the idea forward.
Now, as you can guess, this festival is centered around apples and scrapple. (For those of you who may not know what scrapple is, it is scraps of pork, seasoned and cooked and put in a mold.)
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.
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.
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.
Gavin’s fabrication work and use of non-traditional features and parts is consistent with the original intent of the Rat Rod.
