When I go to classic car shows, cruise-ins, and other retro events involving cars, one of my favorite cars to shoot are rat rods. They are highly customized, rusty, DIY, and sometimes so thrown together you wonder if it can be driven without collapsing into a heap of junk. Last summer at Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, I found a huge Caterpillar rat rod, and a few weeks ago, I saw a rat rod grille with an assortment of dead bugs freshly stuck in it from driving to the show. I’ve included both of these favorite finds in the gallery, as well as some more from other cars shows including Viva Las Vegas in 2011. Later this week, I will make several photographs available for purchase. Thanks for looking, and please enjoy the gallery here!
