Jaguar MK 2: This old green Jaguar could well pass off as a RatRod project. Forget the restoration, it’s cool as it is.
The 2013 Big Al’s Poker Run was held again, and as usual it was huge. A change of venue this year, it was held at Taylor Street Reserve, Victoria Park, a great location for the event and I consider this an improvement.
Here is a selection of 20 great cars from the 2013 Big Al’s Poker Run meeting start. A full set of 286 photos is available on the Brakehorsepower Classic Park Cars Facebook Album.

Rat rod: ‘RATBILT’ from Chuckys Chop Shop. Has the Ford flathead V8 with bare essentials in true rat rod style.
Rear view of RATBILT…yes that’s a rat on the back.
As part of the ratrod style, there no need for chrome or even paint. Bare wood will do for the ute tray…and rust is a feature.
Engine and interior of this ratrod. Rusty rocker covers and makeshift parts.
