LIMA —Rat rodding started out in the mid-’90s. They’re artistic, fun and an eye-catching interpretation of the late ’40s and early ’50s hot rodding culture. Rat rods are meant to loosely imitate, in both form and function, the “traditional” hot rods of the era. The cars are low, loud, chopped, unpainted with giant tires. Most rat rods appear “unfinished”, regardless of their status, as only the vehicle’s bare essentials are shown. The rat rod is designed for "fun." They perform well if they have larger engines and are tuned, but the fun is in building the rat rod for the looks. They are unique creations of the builder.



Eric Webb, of Lima, brought his 1940 Chevy Rat Rod to The Lima News' Real Wheels Cruise-In. His work of art is sure to turn heads as it rumbles down the road. Webb's Rat Rod is sure to please the average car enthusiast and bring a smile to everyone's face as they view it.
