Mitch Allread: Don't Call it a Rat Rod... - /BIG MUSCLE
It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a
look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is
Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one
of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends
the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its
Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail
order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about
everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult -
a work of art however... that'd be just fine.

Satan's Rat-Rod: 1931 Ford - /BIG MUSCLE
â€˘ Henry Kessler
The engine is out of a 1952 Diamond-Reo tractor and makes 1,640 lb-ft of
torque. The chassis is pieced together from old light poles from the City
of Hollywood. The body... that's from a 1931 Ford. Meet Gretchen, one of
the coolest rat-rods we've ever seen and a ride that turns heads wherever
it goes. This ain't no hybrid, instead it's a black smoke belching,
gasoline guzzling, animal of a car that's not only amazing to look at, but
with some cool hidden engineering, has the ability to surprise even the
most hardened of motor-heads.
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 / rust appeal
Back Alley Filth doesn't get any better than this ratical machine ! Powered
by a fully built 463 Chevy engine, that cranks out 540 HP with nearly 600
Ft Pounds of Torque, you are assured a hard pounding ride. Slammed back in
the seat most of the forward view is the Ingelese Eight-Stack Manifold
capped with four Weber carbs. This chopped '31 Ford is hard to beat ! It's
truely a BEAST !!!
