The fairytale of the car we are going to talk about begins in 2010 when Cam, who comes from New Zealand, meets Greg, who is part of the Desert Rats and Customs located in USA, at the Bonneville Speed Week. Then they decided to establish cooperation that will result in producing Cam`s Rat Rod that he is going to firstly show in Bonneville and then back to New Zealand.

And that is what happened. They chose a 1930 model A to be the victim which is going to be turned into a Rat Rod. Therefore a lot of changes and a 1994 Chevy Truck 3.73 gear ratio had to be introduced. Ad for the engine, they opted for a 305 cubic Chevy one. The engine is paired with a GM 700R4 automatic transmission which not only offers a gentle ride, but it also offers low fuel consumption. Ad for the wheels they are Lester Tire ones of which the front are 29 inches tall while the rear are 33 inches tall.

When talking about interior the first thing we noticed was the Ford seats that surprisingly were very cozy. The interior of the car also features old and new stuff. The gauges, for example, are brand new, while the speedometer is rather vintage. The holes that you see in the car remind us of the famous criminals of the past such as Bonnie and Clyde and Al Capone.

As you can see, the fairytale of this car started with a prosperous cooperation and ended with a friendship between Cam and Greg. When the car was finally ready, they went together to the Bonneville event to show it to the world. Cam was beyond happy to finally own the car he has been dreaming about.  Before returning to New Zealand, Cam has made a short road tour to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon with his beauty.
