The roots of Rat Rods was poor folks, often teens, built a car from pieces they scrounged.
Usually it started with a motor that would run and go from there so they had minimum pieces and light weight.
Later they became projects for clubs or a group of friends to chip in pieces and put one together, those often becoming a race only car.
They looked like shit but beat walking and better for getting laid than a skateboard.

Now Rat Rods is an established style and I donít understand the attraction.
At the SEMA show going on in Vegas this week there are scores of guys who took a $30,000 engine, dropped it in a custom built high tech chassis, then added the ugliest body they could drag home, with a $10,000 interior.
I guess for some people itís better to be laughed at than ignored.

That was a '59 El Camino, sorta, partly.
I probably squashed the wheels a bit shrinking the picture.

I guess to fill the gas tank, you have to remove the handlebars and the seat and take the "fender" off.

With 79cc and that size gas tank, refilling might be needed annually.

This looks interesting, the concept truck was cool but whether that translates to the production truck remains to be seen. Be nice if it was 4 wheel drive because it's small size could get between trees and shit but it's unibody so maybe not.

Saw that Hyundai recently in one of the car magazines.

I thought it was kinda cool.

Yeah, I know the production truck won't be the same but I hope they come as close as practical.

Or you could get an Elva...

As long as it ain't my money, they can waste theirs as they see fit.

I guess.

Guess I've lost touch.
Thought 0-62 and 124 MPH for the Elva were typos.
100 and 200 KPH.
186 MPH now becoming common.

I'm sure Elva is capable of much more speed, those were just acceleration times.
