VW Rat Rod Pick-Up
Dave Johnston’s VW Rat Rod Pick-Up
It’s okay, you’re 100-percent right to stare at this wacky beast. It hasn’t always looked this rustic though; there’s been plenty of work involved to get it to this rat rod to it’s impeccable rusty standard.
You see, when Dave first appeared at the famous VW Run To The Sun, this particular little Bug looked almost the same as when it left the factory. Although, to be fair, by now the paint job was a bit on the tired side. The only thing for it was a complete overhaul on the side of the road and, as it turned out, the result was a thoroughly bonkers Tiki-inspired style.
With the carpet ripped out Dave chucked sand down instead and after poking some palm trees out of the windows and a surfboard out the back, found the Newquay crowds were impressed with the Bug’s new found beach-style craziness.
