    I always heard that it was a poor mind that only knew one way to spell a word.

    Sounds cool and I think that it is getting stupid with the Rat Rod thing. Who Cares. If it makes you mad don't read. I look at half the cars that are on the site and they are Rat Rods. It is all in personal perception.

    If I have learned anything here, its that you don't wanna go spouting off and offending the veterans/Senior Members here. The knowledge and willingness to help is outstanding and is very well respected.

    They have guidelines and rules and they are to be respected.... I dont think its in your best interest to go trying to change things just because you think "it is getting stupid with the Rat Rod thing." (Especially with a whopping 9 posts and No intro)

    My suggestion would be to read the rules thread 1st, do an intro and keep quiet.

    And I know you'll respond back telling me to shut my ass, and thats fine. You probably have all the answers anyway.

    This site has been successful thanks to the likes of Ryan and the Senior Members, and REST ASSURED it'll be successful long after you get all butt hurt and leave.....

    Now the real question is exactly how will you respond:cool:

    Nope i'm not gone. I did an into and i Think that people are to stuck up to realize that if someone wants to build a traditional car it will at some point look like a rat until they are finished. some stay like that longer then others.

    I don't think it's really that subtle. There are usually some fairly obvious themes and styling cues that differentiate them.

    What ever at this point. My time could be better spent watching paint dry then trying to hijack a guys thread. I feel sorry for him because he just tried to start something he felt was cool and you all jumped him.

    He sorta has a point that some cars appear a lil "ratty" until they are more complete and take on the traditional look.

    My car is neither. A guy called it a ratrod the other day and I told him that RRs do not have $350 shifters

    It's not being stuck up Kustom292...its simply following the guidelines.
    It's also caused by the loose interpretation of just what makes a Rat Rod.

    To the public it means one thing...to a traditional Hot Rodder it means something entirely different.

    To the public, because of the silly TV shows and the bullshit they spread around etc, a Rat Rod is ANY Hot Rod that wouldn't look at home gleaming on the floor at Barrett-Jackson.

    In reality, 75% of what the public calls Rat Rods are anything but...and THATS the problem!

    We on the other hand consider Rat Rods to be the absolute lowest quality of car built. Assembled only for shock value, with spikes and...barbed wire...for decoration and maybe a welded chain drag link just to wow the onlookers.
    Flat Paint or lack of paint etc DOESN'T make something a Rat Rod.
    It's build quality that determines Rat Rod or Hot Rod.

    We try to build to a certain standard (Not necessarily SHOW quality but nice) and simply see no reason to support cars built purposely to represent the lowest form of car construction. It's like an insult that nobody realizes they're making...yet we should just grin and accept it?

    Naaa..I don't think we should.

    Show quality is one thing and not everyone needs or wants it.
    NO QUALITY is something entirely different and shouldn't be the goal in a build.

    ^^ Extremely well said.

    The best I have heard it put in one sentence is:

    Hot Rods take time & skill, rat rods take neither.

    Well put.


    Kustom292 - There are a lot of good people on this site with tons of knowledge and they are all willing to help anyone. The RR thing is not a subject that goes over well here - it's not what the HAMB is about.
