Corvettes on eBay: 1977 Rat Rod Custom Corvette Pickup

I remember seeing this Corvette a year or two ago on Jalopnik and the reaction I had then of being horrified while at the same time impressed with the time and workmanship that went into creating such a beast returned. This custom rat rod is back on eBay and now you have the opportunity to own this unique mashup of American performance and down-on-the-farm ingenuity.
