I was looking through a Rebel Rodz magazine and read an article about a rat fink artist. His name is Ben Mitchell and and he is located in Oklahoma. Anyways I got the bright idea to have him draw up my flatty with a rat driving it. I gave him a picture of my boat and told him I wanted a rat driving it. I sent him some more details and ideas of what I had in mind. This is how it came out. It will be framed and hung on the my the wall of my office when it arrives. Here is his myspace if anyone is interest in having their hot rod or hot boat drawn up: http://www.myspace.com/dragdaddys

When I first saw the rough drawing, the shifter did bug me a bit. If you look at the rest of the photos of the rat rods he draws, the shiter is his trademark. The v-drive has a shift handle, so I said why not, throw that summa bitch on there.

TBI is right, might need a prop :D

i understand he draws rat rods.but this is your boat.i would have had him do the shifter like a v-drives with the botton on the top.and i think it needs a prop to.dont get me wrong he draws bad ass .but its your boat and it needs to be like your boat.and rcl has a good idea with the down peddle.have him do it with the foot breaking through the bottom with the down peddle.with a caption saying"oh shit!down peddle down peddle."

Aw hell, I thought this post was for a raffle drawing for the Kurtis. I've known it was for sale, just thought you'd given up on selling and had started a raffle to unload it another way! :D :D :D

CC

I'll still buy a ticket, gonna be at Castle Rock?
