Rat Rods are much more complex than it might seem to those who have never gotten close to the phenomenon. We’re not here discuss their tech aspects (that would take hundreds of pages), but to mention that these rusty machines are more about freedom than anything else.
The latest example of this comes from the video below, which shows us Anna, an elderly lady enjoying a shotgun ride in a rat rod. Long story short, the woman was in better physical condition that most of her retirement home neighbors, which inspired the organizers of a rat rod tour to offer her the opportunity to ride in one of the cars.

Anna showed a strong sense of humor from the very beginning, motivating her vehicle choice by saying the car was as old as herself. And don’t imagine this was the let’s-go’around-the-parking-lot ride. Anna got to ride on the road, and she even reportedly told the driver the car needs some shock absorbers.

It’s all explained in the video below, but the action we’re talking about starts around the three-minute mark. Nevertheless, we’d suggest you also check out the first part of the clip.

This shows the garage floor part of a redneck rat rod built. This is the part where we get to see the secrets of the vehicle Anna rides in - by the looks of it, the base car seems to be a Ford Model T.

Seeing two elderly men building the engine while going about their redneck business is delicious. From the way in which they discuss the camshaft installation to lifting the cylinder head to reveal the intake ports, there are plenty of juicy details in the initial part of the footage. These guys get the job done though.
