I find it interesting how differently we can respond to the same word, Frankensteined! Brendan, the writer clearly saw it as being cars which were created using combination of parts from some vastly unrelated vehicles. I have to agree, that is part of my definition of a Frankensteined vehicle. But virtually all of the cars in the article are somewhere between fairly attractive and very beautiful! Somehow that does not fit in my impression of a Frankensteined vehicle. If I were to have picked the cars for this article, I would have gone directly to the world of Rat Rods! I am not being critical of Rat Rods, I think many of them are incredibly clever, very unusual and not while not always beautiful in the traditional way, often very handsome and well proportioned. Some come closer to looking scary or monster like.....which to my mind is being part of the Frankenstein world. Features like visible welds that are not ground down, panels that show visible rust, using repurposed garden hardware as design elements really gives me that monster vibe. Just a thought!
