I designed and built this rat rod for our local Derby. It's all made out of Wood except the axles, accessories and hardware. It has a flat black finish and a stained wood bed. I got Best Looking Car in 2 different Derbys. I donated the car so other kids could get in the derby if they don't have the money, skill or time. For myself it's more fun to build it than race it.

  • I agree with both you and Marty. The fun is in building, and to donate it for those who are less fortunate is something to be proud of. You got my vote.
