Building your own custom rat rod is nothing more than a romantic notion for the most of us. But for Dave, his hand-built creation is his pride and joy. When you've got an old truck frame, a big block V8, and enough perseverance, you can pretty much do whatever you want, as Dave proves here.

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.

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.
