Rat rods are becoming more and more popular every year and the American born trend is now spreading to the rest of the world. So in honer of these rusty racers here are 30 custom rat rod pictures.
If you know nothing about rat rods, here’s a brief look at this weird yet beautiful vehicle style. Basically, a rat rod is a custom car that, in most cases, mimics the early hot rods of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. “That’s why they are all rusted – they are undead!”, you might think. No folks, there is a much deeper philosophy behind rat rods. Most of them are intentionally left unfinished, with primer-only paint jobs at most. This is done to highlight the idea of function over the form.
