    There's Dare to be Different, Dare to be Tacky, and Dare to be Tasteless.

    that's what I don't get. I understand how someone may say he'd do this or that differently, and that's fine, we all do that. But whatever happened to Dare To Be Different?

    Can I play the violation game even if I don't have anything to submit for violation?

    Umm... are we reading the same thread? A rat rod, by definition, is one giant heap of a violation. Even the term "rat rod" means something that is "ratty" or "clapped out." If I'm wrong, someone please correct me. Do you really think that someone would build a car in a style that is based on being shabby/unfinished/clapped-out and actually get offended if you teased them about some quirks?
    but what is it in violation of?

    Agreed.

    These are pics of a guy's car that he allowed 1320Video to enter his yard and take. Gotta wonder if he considered what might happen with 'em. Maybe he wouldn't care, maybe he would but.....

    why would you pick someones ride apart? is it because you wish you had it (quit possibly).

    everyone has their own idea of what they want their car too look like. personally i dig the truck and i would drive the piss out of it just how it is.

    i understand the violation game very much but wouldn't the violation game apply more to the lawn chair crowd versus the guy who is trying to build a car that is unlike every other car out there.

    remember, the violation game is a game of perspective. I guess I played my own "violation game" when I checked out the F-bomb in person the first time.

    No, but I'll volunteer to be the first. Of course, the subject matter must be viewed personally in order to objectively disagree with Heffy....

    The violation game is hilarious when the subject isn't hearing it happen; or when it's not a public thing. I'm glad I never built a project car, I'll stick with tuning everyone else's so my junk doesn't get blasted in public! (although I have observed DF and Chad and Keith playing the violation game, and no I don't understand 90% of what they're talking about BUT it's absolutely hilarious and entertaining just to hear)

    And I'd drive that truck all over Omaha, I should go meet the guy.
