Danny and Eddy stopped at the Kwik Fill on Jackson and Ellicott for some gas on their way to a car show in Amherst this evening and their two pickup trucks sure got a lot of attention. A few people stopped and took cell phone pictures.
To car buffs, the trucks are known as "rat rods." They've got the patina of decades of loyal service to their owners.
Danny is with the 1952 Chevy along with his sons, Ethan and Dylan. Eddy is with his 1955 Ford F-100.
Both vehicles are on modern chassis and have modern suspension systems (for a better ride), but otherwise have original paint and original interiors.
They've owned their trucks three or four years.
Danny and Eddy, both Batavia residents, said they plan on showing off their trucks at Summer in the City in August.
It's just a hobby, they said.
"You can tell they're attention getters," Eddy said. "They really attract people's eyes."
