Pebble Pushers' Scr8pFest
The Scr8pFest 11 RatRods were "Eye
Catching" to say the least at this year's Scr8pFest!
I have been to
several shows this year, and at almost every show, I have seen a
minimum of one Rat Rod! This style of custom car building
appears to be making a comeback in the past couple of years.
Its fun to see the different road signs, among other things,
that are used to construct this type of vehicle.
The bodies, engines and interiors of
the Rat Rods at Scr8pFest all had special touches added to them for the
overall look of the cars. For instance, the Sinners Chop Shop
Rat Rod below had straight pipe mounted directly to the heads
for the exhaust to pass through. The Sinners Rat Rod also had
some custom pin striping applied directly over rust on its chopped top.
What impressed me was the four-link rear suspension with
modern-day air ride. This seemed out of place, but still
added to the unique look of the vehicle, hence Rat Rod.
The next Rat Rod had some unique features as well. How about
the "No Bull-Crap" stickers on the intake scoop. There was a
nostalgic pin-up doll on the firewall, and even an antique oil can
lodged beside the engine block! I wonder if his front license
plate is legal in North Carolina?
