Rat rods are amazing – there’s no doubt about it. Building and designing your own rat rod is the ultimate challenge for some people and those who dedicate hours, days and even years of their lives to custom creation will know how rewarding a final project is.
We’ve looked as some seriously cool rat rods over the past year, like this awesome flame thrower. We even went behind the scenes in an exclusive interview with Sean Puz on how he managed to build his own from scratch. Today though, we’re giving you a special helping of beautiful rat rods in the form of Samuel Cernuto’s video.
Cernuto’s YouTube channel features a long list of fun car videos, with everything from supercars to motorbikes having their own appearance. This rat rod compilation though, is one of my favorites. It features everything from the low-sitting badass attitude to classic custom builds.
Whether you’re looking for some inspiration with your own build, or simply want to appreciate your fellow builder, this video offers some amazing pictures of the best rat rods around.
The humble rat rod is often neglected and not recognized as the true piece of craftsmanship it is. Many custom car builders will focus on creating the ‘rust bucket’ look whilst upgrading anything and everything they can get their hands on that’s out of view. This results in the ultimate machine that it’s quicker off the mark than your standard road car.
Others though prefer a more classic appearance and go for the finished look with some well known features – the wide tires, the whit rims, the open engine and a custom paintjob. Take a look and tell me what you think – have you found inspiration for your next build? Maybe you’ve spotted your car featured? Perhaps you’d like to share your car with us?
