Homebuilt Ratrod "The Scrapper"
Tryin to get into the shop, but the ramp was blocked, when this guy came running up and had to see what it was. He chassed it 4 blocks from his work and was glad to see it stop. He had never seen such a thing. Wanted to know what color we were going to paint it. He has alot to learn.
Homebuilt Ratrod "The Scraprod"
The SCRAPROD out for a spin. This was built from 7 different Parts cars in 5 months working on it during spare time at my shop.
The Petersen Crew Takes a Ride in The Wildest Hot Rod You've Ever Seen!
The parking structure at The Petersen Automotive Museum always has really interesting cars show up, including this wild horseless carriage based on a real Studebaker carriage. The entire drive train is located forward of the pivot point. The middle wheels are the drive wheels. Throttle, brake, and steering controls are all hydraulic. The pivot is a ball joint on a tubular control arm with a coil-over shock!
Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore. Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.
