Could we all be driving diesel powered rat rods in the near future? Given the profusion of diesel rat rods that we have seen in the past few months, the answer appears to be a resounding yes. Not only are there a good bit of cheap diesel engines to be had, it doesn’t take much to turn one of them into a serious drag/street machine! With a little wrenching knowledge, you can turn out one nasty rat rod on the cheap!
It’s not pretty to most, it’s not fast compared to what we usually film, but it sure is badass!! There are a lot of rat rods out there, but seeing this particular truck roll in on some HUGE 26” wheels pulling a sketchy, chopped up, patina’d-out, 40’s truck bed trailer- we knew it was worth a look. We can’t even imagine how uncomfortable the 1000 mile trip must have been during the notorious Drag Week competition. Props to completing the trip!
