About Rat Rod Nation


When we started Rustoration Garage, it was an idea to create an organization from the business models of other successful entities to create one of our own. Hence  the RAT ROD NATION was born!  

In the 2 years that we have been building the group, we went from a meager 5000 members in the first year, to over 40,000 members by year 2. It has been amazing to see where this group has come from and we couldn't do it without our members support.

A little bit about me, I am a veteran, so, my focus will be with US Veterans in mind. In the logo you will find a small 22.  This number has 2 meanings for me. (1) for the 22 Veterans a day we lose to suicide, but also, (2) for my 5 friends that I lost in Afghanistan on September 25, 2005.  Their Chinook helicopter was shot down and their call sign was "Mustang 22".  They will always be remembered and kept in my heart and a part of everything that I do.

The Shop is located about 1 hour east of Carson City, NV and Reno, NV in a town called Fallon NV.  There you will find our 1 acre homestead, a 1500 sq ft shop with all that we are working on. Right now, we are currently a staff of "2" my co-owner wife and myself, so be patient with us as we are doing all that we can to to make this monster a reality.

The shirts that I am doing will be far from the normal, we don't like just being another Rat Rod company that creates the same boring apparel for everyone. We love suggestions and constructive feedback.

Ultimately, during the rodding season, we will want to sponsor car get togethers.  We want to plan 3 a year, so, a Rat Rod Rukus in the Spring, Summer and Fall.  Stay tuned for that.

We want to make my brother's and sister's in arms proud, by really making this work. 

Yes, I still currently serve in the Army National Guard for my state.  I thank each and every VET for their service to our great Nation.

Thank you for supporting us on this journey and please join our FB Group "The Rat Rod Nation".  There we will post content, updates, videos, sales and information in regards to all that we are doing.

Again, THANK YOU! You won't be disappointed!
