Josh's 35 Chevy Rat Rod Maiden Voyage
This is a video of my 1935 Chevy 2 Door Sedan leaving the shop for the first time under its own power. We are still not finished but Bump (the guy driving) was itching to do a burnout. It has a suidide front suspension, suicide doors, chopped 3 inches, channeled another 2 or 3 inches, airbag suspension, 3 trumpet air horn and custom steering components (connecting rods on steering wheel and pitman arm), 350 motor with camel back heads, 3 duece intake w/ Rochester carbs, 350 trans. and a ford 9 inch w/ 390 gears. Still working on sheet metal and a few other improvements (velocity stacks, etc).

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.
