Custom cars generally fit into neat little boxes in terms of how they are used. For example, you're unlikely to see a modded Corvette going rock crawling; it's just not what it's made for (though we bet it'd look awesome, at least for a minute). In the same way, chopped, channeled and customized '50s hot rods aren't really meant to go racing. They look great and go fast, but they are generally more cruisers than sports cars.

However, if this video is any indication, the people of Finland don't adhere in these stereotypes, because this rodder is happy to play in the dirt with his lead sled.

According to the video, the driver is a member of the Ford-Freak Club of Finland, and he clearly knows how to have some fun. Likely inspired by his country's great rally drivers, he gets the tail way out going around this gently curving gravel track. The stunt is somewhat reminiscent of the stock cars races on the sand at Daytona Beach, and this is probably close to what it sounded like, too. Scroll down to watch a very cool Finn getting his hot rod a little dirty.

      Now THAT'S some great video... love the noise, the tail-out attitude, everything. And I'm a huge rally fan from way back. As I was watching it I kept thinking he had a couple cases of moonshine in the trunk - somebody make another one of those lead-sleds and paint it up as Highway Patrol!

      Nice - he's done that before. Love the NASCAR reference, (likely right on the money.)

      All I'm noticing is another classic car gutted and vandalized for no good reason. Why can't they gut and primer an old Volvo?

        Ford made about half a million like it and you can buy good ones all day long for under $20k. Furthermore, what this guy is doing is a GREAT reason! Sticking it in a garage and getting it out for Sunday viewing is not nearly as cool.
