Have you seen this car? Scrappy rat rod divides opinion around St. Petersburg
Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that this car isn’t unique. Spotted driving around the St. Petersburg streets on Thanksgiving, this car went viral due to its unique look. In truth, this isn’t the first time that this vehicle has been seen around the city and it’s not exactly easy to miss. As if its odd look wasn’t enough, it also comes complete with a skeleton passenger to add to its shock value.
Yesterday, it was shared on Reddit where most users were complimentary of its image. However, due to its strange exterior, this also drew criticism. This bizarre car is best known as a rat rod, which is basically a collection of various parts.
A rat rod is a type of custom car that typically has a vintage, gritty, and often unfinished look. Rat rods are generally built from old cars or trucks and often have a patched-together appearance. They can be powered by a variety of engines, from original engines to more modern, high-performance engines.
Rat rods are known for their unique and distinctive style, and they’re often associated with the hot rod subculture. Rat rods are often a labor of love for their owners, who enjoy the process of building and customizing their cars. It’s a niche subculture of car enthusiasts, but one with a passionate following.
