Red Neck Hot Rods
Lens: FA 31/1.8 Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Clute, TX ISO: 100 
Posted By: Sailor, 06-02-2014, 02:11 PM

Some shots of a couple of "rat rods" (if that's the correct vernacular) taken at a local car show a few weeks ago. The first one is a 1929 Reo Flying Cloud (whatever that is) and Bubba's ride is a 1948 International. Note the ergonomic perfection of the International's interior.

Great pics. Eliminates the need for potty breaks on cross-country trips.

Well, brother Bob, my thoughts were more profane, so I won't share them on a family forum.

It is, Patrick. Frankly, someone looking at the car - and who seemed to know about rat rods - pointed out to me that the gear is bogus and just for looks (if that's the right word :fed up. Beats me - I'm a car guy, but this sort of stuff doesn't turn my crank - fun to photograph, however.

Thanks much, Tony. I guess we could call Bubba's truck "efficiency in action."

These are awesome Jer.

Bubba's ride takes the phrase "a piece of crap" to a whole new level.
