Rat Rod, Gellar's Corner, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

There was something odd about it that caught the corner of my eye as I drove by Gellar's today.  So I circled back and stopped in for a closer look.

Turns out it is called a "Rat Rod." A Rat Rod is sort of an unfinished hot rod wherein only the necessary working parts are working. This one needs a bit more work to be at that point.

A mix of old and new.

And plenty of air conditioning.

Very little chrome.

Who needs fenders and running boards anyway?

It is not uncommon to lower the roof for that particular hot rod look. Here's the seam where they welded the top back on the body.

Pretty soon, Mr. Gellar will have it running.............
