That first "car"lives about 2 blocks from me here in Canada. He has two other rides as well, all on late model chassis that just don't quite fit, hence the extended noses due to forward engine placement. The other two are finished a lot nicer than that one, but just don't look right.

Did any of these guys roll the car outside when they were building them and look at the preportions?

Proportions off, mis-matched components, no discernable style, etc. 

I like a lot of different styles, but when it is apparent that there was no real thought process in the design, I just don't get it.  A lot of time and/or money for 'shock value' I guess.

I guess they dont go to hot rod shows or read books. I often wonder what they think (if they do) when they see really nice well proportioned hot rods. Do they think that those owners have got it wrong !!!!

This thread's like a train wreck.  Adding another train, this one on a commercial scale.  Close just doesn't cut it with me when replicas are made.  I understand lengthening doors, or making 'phantoms', but to try to build a replica, and be so off, seems like a waste of time.

I am not sure which is more scary,  the fact that people build cars like these, or the fact that guys take the time to photograph them?............this is almost as bad as  all those people of Walmart emails......... :o

I don,t like Andy Morris,s blue A tub but you need to look at it in the bearing in mind that it was built in the 60,s.
Not a recent built rat rod piece of shit.
