Rod & Custom in the 1950s by Deette Crow

It was the heyday of hot rodding, the early 1950s, when the dry lakes beds, dragstrips, and open roads of southern California were full of cars that had been stripped down and hopped up for maximum power and style. Custom was the name of the game, as enthusiasts everywhere started discovering how top chopping, channeling, and custom painting could make their rod the hottest in town.Into this world came Rod & Custom magazine, full of how-to and tech articles that covered all the essentials of engine swapping, metal fabrication, paint detailing, and more. Rod & Custom in the 1950s features the magazine's best articles from that era, all in authentically reproduced pages that showcase many of coolest hot rods, custom cars, race cars, and even karts of the period. Also included are vintage advertisements as well as the Arrin Cree do-it-yourselfer cartoon that began running in Rod & Custom in November 1955.
