A friend sent me this article via e-mail,I am unsure who wrote it and I don't buy into the writers opinion but I'm just passing the information along. I have seen the car in the past and really like the style..to me the car looks as traditional as many post here on the hamb.HRP The First True Rat In the early 1990s an artist by the name of Robert Williams was known for his major contributions to Pop art and Low Brow art which included paintings such as the famous Hot Rod Race and Appetite for Destruction, the cover art for the Guns ‘N Roses album. Robert Williams had already made a name for himself on Juxtapoz magazine and also worked for many years as the art director for Ed “Big Daddy” Roth and has continued to do pieces of famous art featuring hot rods and the kustom culture. Williams’ who owned several hot rods in the past, decided that he wanted to build a Ford hot rod similar to the hot rods that he remembered seeing around his neighborhood when he was young. He remembered that most of the cars had a simple color primer, proper stance (not lowered or channeled too much), clean body lines, and a motor that had minor modifications that was loud and would make enough noise to terrorize all of the houses on the block. Usually the hot rods were never finished but that was alright with their owners since they were built by teens on a budget.
