The Shark (Rat Rod)
Interesting things found at small, local car shows. This project was found
in southern New Mexico. The song is Rat Rod by Terry Davidson and the
Gears from the album Damnation Blues. Available for download from Amazon.
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.
80 yr old RATROD hits 172MPH + Daily prizes at StreetFire
When Tony Lee and his wife felled a tree growing through the center of a
rusted 1930's sedan years ago, they couldnt imagine the project they were
undertaking would end up in this- a RatRod capable of over 170 MPH. Check

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.
