      Thanks, Linda. There is a phenomenon in custom cars known (around here) as “rat rods” in which the process of restoring a car ends before it’s (traditionally) “finished”. The appealing part of this is that “perfection” can’t ever be achieved so why bother. Warts and all, I suppose.

    That’s so interesting – I was hovering in my mind between “intentionally left that way” and “in process.” I didn’t know about the rat rod phenomenon but it’s not so surprising. Thanks Ken!

      I think there are so many enthusiasts here in NY (and MN, where I used to live) because the winters are long and cold and working on cars is a great pastime. Also, if you thought photography is an expensive hobby, you should try restoring an old car. You will easily find yourself writing many 5 figure checks!

        No thank you! We stepped into a huge agricultural supply store yesterday near here, and I was appalled by how much supplies for horses cost. Then there are boats….yes, let’s stick to what we’ve got. 🙂
