Hot Rod Motorhead Edition

It's Labor Day weekend and that means it's time for the annual Goodguy's car show at the Kansas Speedway.

Over the years, my tastes have shifted from being a vintage car purist to having an appreciation of rat rods and hot customs. The rat rods are progressively becoming more extreme to the point where they are true Frankencars. The best ones today sat mere inches from the ground.

My favorite custom was a slavish reproduction of the Truckster from National Lampoon's Family Vacation.

Presented in no particular order, here are my favorite vehicles and motors of the day:

This sucker dynos at 760 HP

The perfectly rendered Family Truckster.  You can almost smell the despair.
