It comes housed in a Revel Authentic Kit-sized box that also holds a bound booklet designed to look like the cover of Hot Rod magazine, an accompanying Mooneyes mini-catalog, window adhesive hot rod stickers, a set of fuzzy dice, and a Mooneyes bottle opener/key ring, with each of the four discs housed in a custom hot rod color package of its own.

Hot Rods & Custom Classics is the kind of box set you want to leave out to show people all the goodies, with a pile of great music to go along with it under the hood. One of Rhino's best productions.
