Diesel -- that’s the first thing You’ve got to know about Steve Darnell’s rat rod made in his shop Welderup. The body was taken from 1928 Dodge 4-door and was chopped and channeled onto handmade frame which is strong enough to carry the engine from 1998 Dodge truck -- Cummins 12 valve diesel. A lot power, good millage [20+!] and a lot of smoke [literally].
The trim is pretty unuassual -- bandsaw and chainsaw blade. The doors were made form a recycled gold mine brass mesh, dashboard -- from old farm equipment, rear bumper was fabrocated from excavator’s engine pistons, etc. All stuff is from recycled salvage equipment. A real smoker rat…

It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one of the coolest things on the road today.
