Totally disagree...

The rat look originated with the American hot rod scene... the air cooled vw lot just copied...

But the following pull it off perfectly...

Got to agree with Jon here...

The above BMW is my favorite Non-VAG car of all time.

This just does it for me:

The rusty mk1 is a bit poo

That E28 is awesome......if you know the (well documented) story of that car you begin to understand. Same with that baby blue slammed mk1, doesn't it have a red metal flake engine bay and raised turrents?

The whole 'rat' thing like Jon says comes from the Hot Rod scene, it's from the back street tuner guys who built cars to go fast and had no money for fancy paint. Done right and in the right circumstances it's cool.

Too many idiots f***ing up clean cars these days....mk4 Golfs with rusty bonnets are just contrived rubbish for the sake of being 'different'.

Just my 2p Smile

Never have understood the Rat look.

IMO all the above look sh*t, i cant help thinking how much better the car would look with good paint.

so did i, if you check the thread, i think it might even be spaceframed or something, then on air ride...which confused me a bit, surely would be better with a proper suspension set up
