How can this be driven?

Was out walking my dog this afternoon and found this car parked. It appears too low to be driven. This weekend is "Lost in the 50's" here in Sandpoint - an event where folks bring out their old cars/hot rods and park them downtown. Quick snap with my cell phone.

That is a Rat Rod and it looks like a pretty awesome one. The body alone can be raised or lowered via air or hydraulics. See how the body is fitted over the frame? This way the frame and running gear can remain the same and only the body height is changed.

I sent the photo to my sister, her husband has one of these “cars” and asked why it was so low. Husband said it’s an anti theft thing, they lower them so they can’t be stolen. I’m not sure why someone would want to steal one of these things...must be one of those “different strokes for different folks” things.
