They protect your chin, and sometimes your rear, while adding a bit of shine, tradition, and, ideally, some beauty. We're talking about nerf bars, those dirt track- and dry lakes-inspired protective pieces of steel rod and tubing that rodders have been designing and crafting for their rides for the past five decades. During last year's show season we ran across countless renditions of these time-honored accessories, and grabbed photos of a few that we thought were particularly well designed or well executed. Take a look and see what you think, then go get some round steel rod, fire up your torch and see where your imagination takes you.
