Uhhhhhhh, just how do you distinguish a 'rat rod truck' from a project truck? Not being a smart elbow, I'm just thinking what passes for a rat rod car is usually in about the same condition of most of our barely running project trucks............

Wish I had my camera tonight. Steve Stillwell's 56. He had this truck at our meeting tonight. I'll take more pic this weekend at the Orange County Cruising For The Cure car show.

You know, the funny thing is, I feel insulted when people look at my truck and say, "I like how you went for that 'rat rod' look." Thing is, that was not my intention, and no matter what, it's NOT EVEN CLOSE to resembling a rat rod, IMO.....Unless it's my bad painting skills

My grandpa and I worked on my effie together for a long time. He had shown me pictures of his past hot rods, ones he had built since the 1930's, starting with the model-T he got from his dad when he was a teenager. These hot rods of his were all painted flat black. I really thought that they looked sweet. I thought that it would look good on my effie with the diamond plate. To me, it is the finished paint job. However, if I keep hearing it reffered to as a "rat rod" I'm going to paint it something else It seems that flat black on any old car deems it a rat rod to the masses. Doesn't make sense to me I'd just prefer my truck was referred to as I call it, "The Hot Rod."

~~~Rant Off~~~

By the way, what does a real rat rod look like anyway? I'll bet it isn't what people think. It's becoming to general of a term of late.

---Ok, Ok, rant off---

From what I am seeing on TV now, I think the flat black paint it the qualifier. (confused)

That makes no sense to me. The "rat rods" I used to see were welded together from pieces and parts of different vehicles and whatever they could find. The two black trucks I see posted above are really done well and highly custom. How are they rat rods?

The one nova posted looks more like a rat rod (to me), minus the black primer.

I am a novice asking, so don't get upset.
