Default At least it's road legal!

I won't say anything about this Ford GTB, because words just won't fulfil what I need to say, other than I don't think it could be road legal and licenced in Australia. Is that a good or bad thing?

This Autocar has saw blades for hubcaps, and is also road legal and licensed!

Default Mad Max in overdrive

Another trend is to have diesels belching as much as black smoke as they can make

Not me, I'm too cheap to pay for the fuel just to send it out the pipe only part burned. I don't know about the rest of the world but right now in at least some parts of Canada diesel is about 25% more expensive than gasoline - makes me wonder if I was a fool last time I bought a daily driver. My form of craziness is rusty old trucks.....

In Ontario Canada I have seen vehicles licensed that shouldn’t be on the road. It seems that the people that own these things have them inspected before they are modified, giving the inspection station a sense of deniability or they know a mechanic that will do the paperwork while looking the other way!

I have yet to a "rat rod" that does anything for me other have me think what a waste of "stuff" someone could use for a useful purpose. Honestly I think they are little more then a big steaming pile of shˇt and await the day this fad passes.
