Joey’s 52 Chevy Truck…
I like Rat Rods. And I don’t think that the term should be anything but complimentary… They are “period”, “traditional” and any of a hundred other descriptions, but the thing that binds them is that they are usually loaded with stories. A few days ago, when I was talking with Joey about this really cool truck, we compared it to someone with tattoos.
People with tattoos generally have a story about each piece of art… they are a walking canvas of memories, memorials and histories. Rat Rods are generally the same way. The details of the vehicle often have deeper meaning to the owner than to any casual observer.
Joey’s Father-in-Law was “Ready Freddy”, and while he never owned a Hot Rod Shop, the truck was largely inspired by him. And it is a very cool truck.
