When I finally got to the age of 16 I had dreams of all the old cars that I had seen on the shows I watched as a kid, and had seen in car shows with my dad. What I got was an old 78 Bonnaville. In the end... that was probably the perfect car for me at that age. It was a tank. This was great for me but horrible for everyone else, since, I rarely paid sufficient attention to the road when I was driving. Terrorizing everyone on the streets.
That car came to an end when, one day, while driving home from school I had to break hard and heard a pop. The upper control arm broke and I shot right, almost running into the ditch. Since then, I have had a number of other cooler cars, but... alas I still have never owned a worthy classic. As this is the case, I find that as I get older I look at the old cars, bikes (motorcycles), and scooters, with interest in more specific styles.
All things hot rod or classic are my favorites. However, with in this huge category I've found the Rat... whatever's to be the most creative. To me they are art in of them selves, and inspire me a lot in my work. With that in mind... I give you some that I have found online and that move me.
