Overview

Hot rods were born in America when the first automotive pioneers created stripped-down, high-performance versions of their production cars to generate publicity for their fledgling car companies. Early hot rodders echoed that passion for speed, copying those early racing cars by stripping all non-critical parts from their cars, tuning their engines, and racing their rods from California’s dry lake beds to the beaches of Florida.

Hot rodding is all about performance and style, and that’s what the cars in this book reflect. In Hot Rods, you’ll find examples of classic traditional hot rods, exotic show rods, and bare-bones rat rods, each representing its owner’s vision of what a hot rod should be. These cars embody the spirit of the early hot rodders, echoing the history and purpose of those early days.
