A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. Each Wednesday, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.

This Rat Rod is the perfect find for our post-New Year’s edition of Lot Shots. It’s a tad disheveled and has a bit of a rough edge to it. It also holds a half-empty rum bottle and probably brings some interesting tales.

Sounds like a typical New Year’s morning to us.

It also helps us carry the age-old debate into 2013: Rat Rods–love ’em or hate ’em?

Check out our gallery and let us know what you think.
