Do you know the difference between a street rod, a hot rod, and a rat rod? The differences can be hard to understand, so we put together this infographic with some information about the different styles, their origins, and even associations and clubs that still celebrate these custom cars.

Street Rod

A street rod is an automobile of 1948 or earlier that has undergone some modernization to the engine, trans mission, interior, or anything else. It's a non-racing vehicle used for enjoyment. The more family friendly version of the hot rod.

Hot Rod

Similar to the street rod, the hot rod is an automobile of 1948 or earlier that has undergone some modernization to the engine, trans mission, interior, or anything else. A hot rod has a more "souped up" engine because it is designed for racing. The engine is often exposed.

Rat Rod

The term "rat rod" refers to an unfinished appearance of a hot rod. Basically a hodge-podge of car parts. When a part does not work or needs to be replaced, you don't go to the store to buy a new piece, you simply find it off of another vehicle and attache it on.
