| Description

RAT is an acronym for 'Recycled Automotive Transport', perhaps an ironic salute to prevailing western culture. However, although RAT-Look vehicles may look like they have lain abandoned for years, the very opposite is usually true; that look has often been achieved by putting in a great deal of effort, and money. The VW scene has led the way in creating RAT-Look vehicles that are, in themselves, works of art. Builders go to extremes, painting a vehicle with multiple coats which are then sanded back to different depths revealing a patchwork quilt of feathered colours. Graphic designs are then carefully created over this patch work of paint colours then weathered to match the whole look. Stance is all important to RAT-Look VWs, which often sit very low, giving the RAT-Look car attitude.

However, the engine, suspension, brakes and transmissions are usually far superior to the original with many Rat-Look cars having big power outputs and carefully developed chassis. The deliberately weathered look is now so popular, enthusiasts can spend more time and money creating that exact look than they would have done on a conventional restoration. Once the desired style is achieved it is carefully persevered with a clear coat which seals the rust but prevents it taking hold of the vehicle to a level which would damage its integrity. The great thing about the RAT-Look is there are no rules, what the builder thinks looks good is good.
