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!
