    I'd like to build a modern version of one.

    My idea is to take a S10 truck, strip off the front, have an open radiator, LS motor or turbo diesel, narrow the frame after the cab for big ass tires.

    Sweet. The tires certainly grab your eye on it -- not what one would expect.

    I'd love to build one but with the stupid pot holes and idiotic speed bumps in PA, it wouldn't last long. I'd have to have a winch installed in the front and back.

    True we have a truck here that is literally a Rat rod. He welded Rat's all through out the truck. I'll see if I can find a pic. It may be in my photobucket account so it may be lost.

    It's not lost you just can't use the IMG code and have it show up here

    it might as well be now. I tried downloading the pics and Photobucket did something where I can't view it on my computer. I can't even convert it to a jpeg.

    add a wide flare on the rear walls for bigger tires too.

    Start a new trend. Rat car. Cut out rotted fenders and quarters. Throw on some truck tires.
