The Rat Rod Gets the Attention

So today I went to the World of Wheels car show in Pittsburgh.  I walked around the show photographing cars that cost more than most houses.  I’m talking about pristine cars, beautiful, perfect in every way.  But which cars do you think had the biggest crowd around them?  The Rat Rods.  For those of you that don’t know what a rat rod is this is the wikipedia definition:

rat rod is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates (or exaggerates) the early hot rods of the 1940s, 1950s, and early-1960s. Most rat rods appear “unfinished”, regardless of their status, as only the vehicle’s bare essentials are driven.

So todays post will have a couple of rat rods and I will post some of the other cars over the next few days.

Tomorrow I’m heading out to the ice festival in Ligonier, Pa hopefully I’ll find a few interesting things to post.

The Intricate Parts of an Automobile

Tonights post is a prelude to my day off tomorrow.  The World of Wheels car show is in Pittsburgh this weekend and tomorrow you will find me meandering through the cars with camera in hand.  I’ve posted before about my love of the automobile and the ties that I have to it and my father.  Tomorrow will be no exception, although he is gone now I know that he would have truly loved this show.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as he would have.

Here are a few cars from past shows.  Tomorrow I will post some from this years show.
