There are all different kinds of vehicle styles in this world. Whether you enjoy luxury, racing, cruising, or some mixture of all of the above, you can find something to meet your wants, needs, and your stylish flair. This time, the style that we are digging into is none other than the rat rod. If you’re unfamiliar with how a rat rod works, basically, the concept is to build a hot rod with all of the spare parts and creative means that you can to put it together. The end result will not only be a vehicle built with a bunch of what appears to be junk but something that really shows off how creative you, the builder, can actually get.
This time, we check out yet another unique perspective on a rat rod as someone has taken a taxi and decided to completely transform it. The machine that was once used to tote around people has now been completely repurposed to become a sort of showpiece. With all kinds of custom work and odds and ends, the taxi has become more of a van that looks like it’s slammed to the ground thanks to some key bodywork. The best part of this build is that it all happened within a span of just a week! There aren’t too many other people who can say that they have done something like that.
Follow along in the video below that will give you the behind the scenes story on how exactly this taxi cab had made its transformation from a regular driver to rat rod beast within just a couple of days. You would think that, after something was constructed in such a short amount of time, that it would be a piece of junk, however, to us, it looks like this rat rod ended up coming out pretty slick and well done. Be sure to tell us what you think about this week-long build.
