Default Hello from KY

Hey fellas,

My name is Brian, everyone calls me Sheeper and Iíve lived in Elizabethtown Kentucky for 2 years , originally from Washington state.

Anyway, Iím new to the Rat rod scene, Iíve owned many classic cars through the years, just recently sold my 64 Chevy II Nova, great show car etc.
I really wanted to try my hand at a rat rod just for the simple fact i donít gave to be perfect on every detail, I think it will be fun.
However Iíve been looking around and is there a good platform to start from for my first go?
Iím a Chevy guy so that would be the only thing specific I would start with.

Thanks for having me!

Welcome to the site.
Lots of great help here if you need it.
For a first build I'd stay away from the 36 back Chevy/GM because there's a lot of wood in them. Mid 36 up they went to all metal.
Unless you're good at fab work then, jump in.
