lol I just realised that whilst to date I havn't done a car themed build all of mine fit the description cause baring the last build they are all rough round the edges. and rough in fluff certainly sounds like a ratrod... hah. Just got my first request for a ratrod been hanging out to build one for ages - I have a couple of hubcaps but not sure if they are interesting enough as hey are just plain old ones...
