Those split bones are cool as can be. I find sometimes it's best to look at something, specifically to find something unique, like those bones before I pass judgment on someone else's ride. I'm not into the really outrageous "Rat rods" that are basically "clown cars" for their shock value, but the car in the photo looks like it would be a fun low buck project, with some great ideas to stash away in my head. 8)

I like the way the wrench at the top holds the neck of the bottle on this ride. Not my type of hot rod? Probably, but an interesting detail to file away.

That's a good example of what I call an 'art rod' or 'rat rod', as a lot of ingenuity is taken in performing the most simple of tasks.  Ingenuity overrides any performance characteristic.  In this case - weight.  A very simple lightweight container & bracket would weigh much less.   They definitely were not interested in performance, which I believe is one of the essential ingredients for a hot rod.

This steering support/gauge panel has had some pretty good planning/ingenuity involved. ;)

Model A sedans that are waist high or less with upside down headers and nazi symbols on them. Give me two minutes on a D6 Caterpillar and I would be in my glory. Sorry but I have no pictures.💩💩

This reminds me of my first car. When you dropped the trans, it said STOP. ;D

Same here.  I don't go to a car show to see new cars.  I can see them anytime at a dealership - or in the case of GM vehicles, at work  ;)
