Oldsmobil 88 Rat Rod

Freight train wagons and desolated industrial surroundings were just perfect for portraying one of the most known Slovenian old-timers. The roaring sound of the eight cylinder engine came out of the industrial setting creating a surreal image even a rabbit that suddenly appeared on the scene could not disturb. Gregor Rus and his friend Miha Starc brought the oldsmobile 88, made in 1949. They have had it in Ribnica since January 2009. Its main feature is rat rod look, a growing trend among V8 old-timers. "The car has kept its original looks. We haven't made any artificial changes to it," says Rus. When the eight cylinder engine stopped, dead silence fell.
