Rat Rod pickups on display at the High Plains Riot Show [Video]


Rat Rod pickup High Plains Riot ShowA few years ago, we stumbled onto the High Plains Riot Show here in Tim’s local area of Gering, Nebraska. The Rat Rod pickups and one crazy Jeep were pretty cool to see as well as video tape.

Since the 2020 edition of the show is hitting Mitchell, Nebraska, at the Scotts Bluff County Fairgrounds this weekend, we figured it might be time to revisit this video. And if you like what you see and happen to be in the area, be sure to visit the show’s Facebook page for details on the car show, swap meet, BBQ, drive-in movie and charity auction.

If you go, the trucks come in all sorts of bizarre configurations with interesting accents and customizations.

At the 2018 show, we were able to interview one of the owners. Check out our video below.

While Rat Rod pickups are certainly love it or leave it, we have to admire the craftsmanship and creativity of several of these trucks.

Here are some of the photos we took as well that day.

They are planning more events in the future, and we’re considering covering them: Is this something you want to see or are you in the blah crowd?
