Rat Rod Update

Last week I arrived in Petaluma on Monday afternoon. I stopped by the folks house just in time to catch a ride with Dad over to the muffler shop where they were installing the exhaust system in the rat rod.

Here's a shot of it in the parking lot at the muffler shop:

And here's a shot of it up on the rack:

You can see here the big pipes coming off of the exhaust manifolds on either side leading to the little mufflers on either side in the rear.

Here's a couple more shots of it in the driveway when we finally got back to the house:

And here's the bed of the truck lifted up to show the shiny new parts inside:

Now all that's left is a few details like a hood ornament, custom shift knob, and making it street legal according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
