Frankensteiners Ball 8 - Part 1

The weather sucked but there was still a decent turnout at Frankensteiners Ball 8 at the Anoka County Fairgrounds.  It was cold and wet with occasional snow & sleet but about 500 cars and a very small handful of bikes showed up at the event (I drove).  I've attended a few times and the event is usually a lot bigger when the weather cooperates.  If you like hot rods and rat rods, this event is for you.

I've got about 70 photos to share over 5 posts and I'm just going to kick it off with something I've never seen before... monster-rat-rod-truck-tractors.  I really don't know what to call these things but they were massive, loud, and awesome.  I'm going to go with "monster rats" unless someone corrects me.

Here you can see a few views of the crowd that braved the crappy weather.  Lots of people were in costume too.

While I'm partial to rat rods (and you will see a lot of photos of rat rods), there were lots of different vehicles there.

Classics:

Cars with nice paint:

Hurses:

Modern cars like this Dodge Challenger:

... and cars with ridiculous sound systems like this one that made water "dance" on the roof with his bass.

The motorcycles are up next.
