i was selling a set of chevy rallye wheels to a guy for his el-camino. when he came in he saw my 50 f-1, (definately in project mode, we're talkin no clip, no bed, just a frame, drivetrain and cab). so he's lookin at it and looks over and says "man i just love these ratrods!" i said oh yeah (not correcting him in hopes he'd be buying my wheels). haha it didn't really piss me off but the cab had paint, no rust...definately doesn't look RAT, i just thought it was funny how loose that term is getting.
