"Rat Rod"

I went to a car show today and my childhood love for HOT RODS came roaring back to me.  I wasn't old enough to live the "American Graffiti" experience as a bonafide participant but I rode along with older cousins to drive-ins where waitresses brought your burger to your car window and saw (and heard) the mighty street rods race on Broadway.
I drew this 1932 Ford 5 window coupe after a friend of that generation told me it was one of the famous local "Rat Rods" that I saw on our small town streets as a kid and that it was recently restored and upgraded to a stylish "Hot Rod" level.
