What is a “Rat Rod?”
A Rat Rod is a custom car with a deliberately worn-down, unfinished appearance, typically lacking paint, showing rust, and made from cheap or cast-off parts.

Where Does “Rat Rod” Come From?
Rat Rod is a variation of hot rod, a term used for a custom car, usually modified from a classic car, that has been in use since the 1940’s. Automotive historians are uncertain of the origin of hot rod. Some claim it’s a shortening of hot roadster. Others say rod refers to the engine’s camshaft and a hot rod refers to a performance camshaft, or performance engine. In the 1930’s, hot rod was also slang for an “armed criminal” or “unruly young man”, suggesting a possible connection between a fast, flashy cars and hooliganism.
