Here is a car I shot for Rat Rod Magazine last summer. It was in the 2nd issue of the magazine.

This car was built in 3 weeks. The small crew put in serious hours in that 3 weeks.

You say, thats no big deal, Overhaulin does builds in a week. Well this car started out as a super short wheelbase wheelie car. They built a frame, found a second Model A body for parts to stretch out his body, and got this thing all put together and rolling that quick.

With the flat black primer on it I wanted to find somewhere gloomy to shoot it so I brought the owner to an abandoned loading dock under a train track that I knew of.

My goal here was to totally surround the car in filth and ruins.

This was shot with natural lighting. Most of the shots were taken with my Tokina 12-24mm f4 lens.

Overhaulin does builds in a week.

Using how many people?

My goal here was to totally surround the car in filth and ruins.

Success! :D
Good series on it. I'd clean up that spot on the tread of the RR tire in #1.

You captured the "grunge" feel in these images very well , makes the car fit right in.

I am a huge fan of the rat rod movement.

Just remember that even a rat can look good in the right light. ;)
