Blown Big Block RatRod
James Creed having a crack at a burnout in the Lid Design Ratrod, this was done on private property as we are all responsible men.
402 Chev big block, 8/71 Supercharger, t350 trans, 9" mini spool diff.MSD Ignition cut off running at 6000rpm which is was hitting way to quick, will swap to an 8000rpm cut out if we ever do this again. This vechicle is not a drag car, it is being built as a work/promo vehicle for LID DESIGN. It has been fully engineered from the ground up and is in the final stages for transport approval.
Again its not a drag car, just a fun modded ratter that the owner Jamie Keeling has worked on for 18 months to complete and was just saying thanks to one of the boys for all the hard work.
Well Done Jamie and all those involved for such a mental fun ratter.
Sneaky Pete - 1950 Peterbilt Hot Rod Semi - MyRideisMe.com
From MyRideisMe.com : Behold the 1950 Peterbilt owned by Michael Leeds. The name for this Hot Rod Semi is up in the air, but "Sneaky Pete" is the front runner. Michael comfortably cruised about 100 miles from Santa Cruz, CA to Billetproof thanks to the inline 6 Cummins turbo-diesel hooked to a 12 speed automatic transmission spinning highway friendly 2.92 gears. Michael guesses 12 to 20 mpg but driving range is no problem since he's hauling 105 gallons in the polished aluminum fuel tank out back. This baby's read to travel, even weighing in at about 7000 lbs.

Rat Rod Central
This year's World of Wheels at McCormick Place in late January had a great rat rod display, but the video had to wait until I found the right music. And it doesn't get much better than Mickey Gilley "Drive-In Movie" and Eddie Cochran "Somethin' Else".
And to the guy behind me talking to his friend while I was shooting: They DIDN'T forget to paint them! And that's the main attitude that people who own or like rat rods have to put up with.
