Rat Rods

 So I have to thank my father-in-law for exposing me to the awesome car culture of 'Rat Rods'. They are kind of an anti status symbol. Meant for driving, not for show. This is a whole car culture that is basically a counter-reaction to traditional hot rods and heavily influenced by a rockabilly/greaser/pinup/punk feel. These are classic cars that look crazy. Most of them are unfinished, with just primer paint or totally rusted out. Each one is unique and a lot of them have these fantastic decorations that make them even more wicked. So that's what I focused on for these shots. The bad-assed details that caught my eye.

I love the dead, dried on bugs!
