ratting my bangs...not

check out this chicago group, the rat patrol.

this site has lovely photos in addition to in-depth info about the ratter's activities.

speaking of 'ratted' stuff, i was a judge for a hot rod division of a car a few weeks ago, as i do every year. great fun that is.

anyway, there were definitely more rat rods at the car show this year than last and the numbers keep building. the art of hot rod cars is definitely becoming more diverse.

so what's a rat rod car? well, if ZZ Top's hot rod in the Legs video was more classic hot rod, a rat rod is the opposite - intentionally finished with primer and not a clear coat, and plenty of funky touches like devil-shaped tail lights.
