Although the "rat look" isn't for me. I can understand the patina of an old car being part of the attraction.
I cannot see the point in "deliberately rusting" a modern car. To me it just looks wrong, but as others have said- "Each to their own"

Did anyone see the "Sour Kraut" bug that Jesse James did ?







Although to be fair I don't think they deliberately rusted it looking at the doner :lol:





Well, apart from the flip front and other fibreglass bits on it :tup:

The purpose of paint is to protect the metal underneath. The fact it looks pretty is a welcome bonus.
To deliberately remove the paint to encourage rust i.e shorten the cars life significantly just doesn't make sense. If you like the primer look then fair enough - at least it's doing *something* to protect the metal (although primer does absorb moisture over time).
Leaving something in bare metal to go rusty just makes things look like they've been nailed together badly in a shed.
