When I first saw this 1936 Ford truck rat rod, the thought hit me about what I’ve always felt about car design. 

The design of a vehicle comes in three waves. The blur you get when it passes you on the freeway, the overall language as you approach, and, for the truly inspired, the nitty gritty details that those with enough guts to approach will appreciate.
