Brian's 48 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I want to see the guy in overalls get into and out of it! Other than that my only question is why?

They think they are being cool - more like fool or tool
They are like the ones with their bodies pierced with metal and covered with tattoos

Every time I have the chance I tell them "The first time I saw someone that looks like you I wasn't impressed, nor am I now - You are dismissed."

The first rat rod I ever saw I thought was kind of original and clever. Every one since then I fell fast asleep....

So he spent all that time and effort to make that thing and didn't think to put in a top entrance....
Those wheels and tires cost enough to get me a long way to getting my truck fixed up.

Dave, with what gets called rat rods now, I wouldn't put yours in that same classification.

Those are not considered to be rat rods around here. They are still identifiable. Huge difference between your vehicles and that cap wedge with wheels. I want to see that "skinny" boy in the overalls climb in that thing.
