I like it , but hold on to your shorts !
rat rod alert!
I'm guessing flat black with red wheels. Or rust.
What brand of tractor grille do you plan to use ?
give the guy a break, so far the workmanship looks great.
I dig it. It looks like it's sitting still....just...sitting...still.
I think Edweird is right. Look at the workmanship you can see.
I've seen good workmanship on donks, volksrods, and titties, but..............
WTF ? what happened to the HAMB i once new ?
Awesome tractor grille
"PM with questions" I have no questions.
You REALLY need to re-think the proportions....at the very least. The super long front end really needs to go. Bobber trucks can be done right, ala Rudys truck, but it's ALL in the proportions and stance. Super long front end+really short bed=BAD. Just my 2 cents...
I like it, I know you build drivers. See you in four months at sk500.
I agree ... I don't always build the most HAMB friendly vehicles myself but stance and proportion MUST be right. Long nose & short bed just doesn't hit the mark.
Not to bash on your build, I just don't want to see a guy bust his butt building something and then not be happy with it.
Rudy's truck had the stance & proportions on the money.
front need to be longer brah!!!Maybe hook it up with a flatbed in the front and use it as a tow vehicle.
Honestly I just think it needs more skulls and cobwebs....
Seriously though why now? Bobber trucks were cool for like 15 min in 2004.
Cool headers, I would put flamethrowers in them to deal with pesky traffic when you need to change lanes.
Looks like a nice start, and obviously well built.
And ignore the "Can Rats" comments....must be a slow night in the toilet for them.
fuckin like it so far.
ignore all the bitching women and hens.. they like their rods to
shine for the masses and everyone to like them.
build it for you not the limpwrist bitchers .
all you fucks are missing the point. "Traditional Hot Rods and Customs".
this is not a rat rod site, and if you are building a 40's pickup on a T bucket frame you are building a rat rod.
build whatever the fuck you want, just don't post it here.
no a rat is built on the cheep with what you got.
or are you saying that your the rat expert? you build a lot of them do you?
say... what color of rust do you favor?
no.. your not? then why'd you pipe up like you where? gee your a confusin' dude.
the way things are going this will be a rat rod site in a couple years. nobody seems to give a fuck.
like the man said. IT"S NOT DONE.
wait till it's done till you pass judgement.
This "thing" aint neither of those. . .
Yeah some of us give a fuck its got a tractor grill,the proportions are screwed. There are other web sites that people would love to see that on and would accept it but not on here atleast not by the people it was started for.
This might show the overall consensus ..............
