this is a great little "how to" for young guys, entry level builders and people with a near zero budget!
what I like most about this book is that I believe it will help young kids understand that they "can" build a hot rod. we need more kids in the car hobby and this book will show how you can build your own rat rod with little more than a welder, some scrap steel and a whole lot of "want to"! thanks to the author for keeping it simple, readable and fun.
I highly recommend it, especially to the kid out there who has the passion but "thinks" it takes big bucks to build a rat. pick up this book and go for it!
thanks,

Ken

"How To Build A Rat Rod Roadster" should be considered a primer; a starting point to go from before kicking in your own imagination, talents and originality. More than just a "cut here" or "weld there" tutorial, it is an inspirational offering for a very select number of people. This book will offer no value to the masses and it will never sell millions of copies. For that reason, I commend the author for his willingness to share a rare look into his private world of fabrication, creativity and experience. If you don't have a shop, welding equipment and at least a working knowledge of metal (where to get it, how to cut it, weld it and create with it) it will offer no value. The drawings and creative influence, however, will be of great value to those that would like to create a car from scratch. Thanks Keith for your inspiration and for sharing your talents and creativity and experience with what will be a small, but grateful audience.

Hello, I have been toying with the ideas of building a "rat rod"/hot rod for some time now. However, I am a father of four and don't have a large surplus of "toy money for dad". This little text confirms my idea that with a patience and time, I indeed can build my own little hot rod. I began gather discounted running gear parts from craigslist, and trying build up the self confidence to design and construct the body. I have just completed a welding class at the local community college, I feel very confident in my ability to fabricate a body- especially after reading this e-book. BUT I plan to use a donor frame or have a pro weld up a ladder frame for me. (The frame is the foundation or your hot rod- ONLY COMPETENT WELDERS should fabricate the frame!!!! Safety first my friends.) This book was a great price... I was able to download it instantly (and I am really not a computer kinda guy). The text was a quick read, and EXACTLY what I needed to spur me on to construction!!! I would buy ten times over! I hope my review will help you.

Short and to the point. Good photos and drawings, but you'll probably need to scale up/down for your own frame. Overall, glad I bought it, the advice is solid and comes from someone who clearly has learned by doing.

Mr. Nichols book reflects the "build it, don't buy it" trend, that is called "Rat Rods". (Vehicles that are built out of whatever car parts you have, or can get for next to nothing, that end up resembling old cars.) This book follows his build of a "faux" 1932 Ford body. I found the build to be interesting because he didn't start with an old car body, but parts from a commercial truck box. There are technical drawings, project photos, and suggestions on alternate material ideas. If you have the skills to build a car, will you ever build a car like this? I doubt that, rat rods are an individual expression of the owner. Is this a good purchase? Yes. Out-of-the-box thinking, and use of basic home project skills, will give that home vehicle builder ideas to tackle a project vehicle.
