more vw rat sylz.

A lot of it was based on attitude more than car. Its kidna hard to explain, but it seemed to be more like the hot rod sceen but with a futuristic twist. It involved a lot of deep dished steelies, white whall ties, driving/foglights,roof racks with "junk on top", rust, primer paint-jobs, pinstriping, and skulls.

Yeah, i think I'd like that... Alot of the old Rat rods are old Ford and Chevy parts, so it's not really that Euro. Thanks a whole bunch!

I really like this quote...which is about 'hoodride' but it resembles rat stylz in a way

Quote:
HoodRide was created not off of a traditional business model, but off an idea for a better car community. I can't speak for everyone, but I feel a lack of respect for one another when it comes to anything car related. No longer will I put up with ego's, the "better than you" attitude, the disrespect, the put downs, the car show judges, the arrogant magazines, etc. Cars were first ment to be functional and second to be stylish. Who decided cars were first meant to be status and second to be fun and exciting? HoodRides are first and always unique, loved, driven, and fun. If you feel the same, you're in the right place. You are NOT your car, you're just the dumbass who's in love with it!
