I got under your skin because the Rat Rod disease that has seeped into the consciousness of so many who once held appearance to be sacrosanct. Common sense no longer matters to those so afflicted. Look through the pictures Ryan uses to illustrate traditional hot rods. How many look like the roadster in question? Do you see any rust buckets that were built and driven back then? Those builders had the kind of pride that goes with keeping your ride presentable enough to turn heads because of the design, execution, and upkeep. As to your attitude toward my disdain, I figure that is symptomatic of the disease.
