I guess in my older age I am not as up on car terms as I used to be. I have come across the term "rat rod" (today in an Ebay ad describing a GT rear view mirror) and am stumped to know what it means. So please help educate a fellow Opeler so I can sound more "hip" at the next Opel gathering!

In Biker circles a "Rat" is a junker that still goes but sans paint, sans chrome with taped up wiring and LOTS of oil everywhere!


I see where it could come from now. The above description fits quite a few of the Opels on the road today! :p

(and not on the road for that matter!)


Or maybe it is the favorite ride of members of the "Rat Pack"!

Or the name of the jeep from that great 60's tv show "Rat Patrol"
