WTH!

Post by Chris55 on May 10th 2013, 4:07 am

Drove the 47 to work today, and some kid (24/25 years old) from the shop come in and ask me "Hey is that your rat rod outside?" Man we need to educate these youngsters.

In my opinion - What's even worse is how much some of these rat rods go for... I have seen restorations of a vehicle sell for less than a hacked up rat rod job.... People are putting rat rod in their car ads for nice cars, just so they show up in searches.

Don't get me wrong, to each their own. Some of the creativity of the rat rods is interesting, and some of the builders are probably as smart as they come for making things work.

Yeah, the whole 'rat rod' and 'patina' look has things all out of whack. Throw in a dose of ignorance from the bystanders of the hobby and you are bound to get misinformed and uneducated observations.

Shaking my head,

I got on the site on my phone, and it's all blue. No Scroungers logo, just all the post. Been on alot on my phone, and it's never looked like that. Thought maybe we had been hacked.

Everything looks fine on my end. May be a passing thing.

Mine has changed on my iPad. I used to have a black background and all the pics were visible. Now I have these title bars and I have to click on the script of the pic in order to see the pic, plus I have to log in every time. Any settings I need to change?

Fixed mine. Look at the top right of the page, there should be an arrow. Click the arrow and a menu will drop down, chose traditional view and you'll be back to the regular screen.
