The Story – Share this Little Known Secret with No One – - – One of the pleasures of cruising in a nice hot rod or rat rod is destination.  It’s kinda like off-roading in a way.  Senseless if Ur not going anywhere.  Even if it’s a simple pick-nick at the top of some hill – U has a responsibility to be going somewhere in the old Ford Rat Rod T ~:0)

This great old Ford Rat Rod T – I really enjoy saying and typing “Ford Rat Rod T”.  There’s something very satisfying about that.  There goes another digression.  I knows some sticks in the mud who berate me for my digressions.  Personally I find them very Capra-esque – Ha!

Anyway this great old rat rod is the very essence of spare.  It is so simple and clean it brings a tear.  The mill is a simple straight-six with a couple of nice carbs with proportioned chrome air cleaners possessed of a jaunty angle in their mounting.  A very refined look in the open engine bay.  I’ll do a pix featuring that end of the rod soon.  And the rear end is a real bewdy!  There’s nothing there!!  How cool is that?  And that fuel tank is a big fat work of art.  They’ve welded up two halves of something to make the thing.  And that’s saying something with that quality of weld-work.  Every detail on this Ford Rat Rod is quietly spectacular.  I guess that’s what they call “Zen”. ~:0)

So – here we are at one of me fave sunset spots.  When are we there?  We’re there at sundown.  What are we doing?  We’re having a nice time.  We had wine. (and Ronald our designated driving robot for such occasions - Ha!) – - – for U blue-noses out there – we were there for the night.  The place is a bed-and-breakfast.  It’s a popular destination – so there!

So there U have it!  Great looking!  Great Driving Ford Rat Rod and a Great Destination.  U should try it sometime.  There’s something to be said about going somewhere cool in a cool ride.  Don’t forget to get urself and Ur loved ones nice prints of this little bewdy for Ur walls.  -  It’s a Good Thing ~:0) VivaChas!

    I don’t what is hotter that sky or that roadster, you tell me

  • Well Larry – that sky is out of our pay-grade as creators so it’s got to be the daily miracle of that flaming sky! BUT – (didjer ever notice how everyone’s always got a big but – tip-o-the-hat to PeeWee Herman) – BUT – the guy who emulated creativity on that rod did a man’s job of it keeping to simplicity – and THAT is the name of that tune my brother – thanks for passing me the soapbox this morning -Ha! ~:0) VivaChas!
