Hot Rod Milestonesby Dain Gingerelli
When it comes to the world of automobiles, no genre is as American as the hot rod. Beginning in the postwar 1940s and progressing to the present day, this color history takes a decade-by-decade look at the hot rods that have become particularly notorious for their creators' stylistic and mechanical achievements. A swingin' combination of evocative archival and eye-popping contemporary color photography showcases landmark creations by the likes of George Barris (i.e., "Ala Cart" and "Twister T"), Ed "Big Daddy" Roth (i.e., "Beatnik Bandit" and "Outlaw"), and Boyd Coddington (i.e., "Smoothster"), as well as cars that were crafted by lesser-known builders but, nonetheless, earned a fair share of renowned. In all, a celebration of nearly 40 fantastic hot rods.
