Default coolest rat rod hauler ever

spotted this in the parking lot at the dunes today. homemade frame, air cooled inline 8 cyl diesel, old semi cab. pulling an enclosed trailer with an equally unique buggy in it. the kicker is, he drove it from new york state! truck and trailer had new york plates

That things was pretty sweet, and so was the machine in the trailer. I was driving by to park the trailer and it caught the corner of my eye. When I turned around, I couldn't believe how long the engine bay was!

Using the air cooled engine demands respect on it's own. What a cool tow rig and fun buggy. The visor on that thing is huge.

That thing is sweet. I can't imagine it being fun to ride in that towing for any distance... I'll stick with my super duty.
