Our piece yesterday on the slammed BMW 5-Series now known as Rusty drew the total range of comments about the aesthetics of the rat rod culture. That got us to thinking: What car do you want to rat rod?

The new rat rodders aren't afraid to broach the truck world; It might take a few years to find an example worth treating this way, but what better way to honor all that is American than with a proper chopping and lowering of an Hummer H3T pickup? The Hummers always looked far nicer than they should have; a thorough patina of rust would do wonders. And GM finally figured out how to squeeze a V8 between the rails of its compact pickup platform, leaving room for more imaginative choices.
