How did you acquire your ride? I found my truck with no motor or trans and roughed out the metal work at a friends place. What drew you in when you bought it? I always wanted to build a hot rod rat truck and found this to be a fine specimen. Does it have a name? I call it freaky. RELATED: See Photos of the 1947 Chevrolet Rat Rod Pickup

  What do you feel like when you drive it? It really gives me an adrenaline rush when I go into boost. Haven't dynoed it yet, but it has tons of power. What would you change about your car, if anything? I want to build long ladder bars for it this winter. What have you done to make it a bolder ride? To make it a bolder ride I spent a lot of time on custom metal work to make it look really mean. RELATED: See Photos of the 1938 Ford V8 Rat Rod Truck
