This is the eighth in a series of hot rod history books. The book relives the golden era of hot rodding – the 1930s to 1950s. Almost 600 photos show the early days of hot rodding. The photos all come from veteran hot rodders’ albums or shoeboxes. The pictures display the ideas and modifications that went into the hot rods in that period. This is an excellent reference for enthusiasts who want to learn about the hot rods built over 50 years ago. The photos and text show what hot rodding was like in California back then; what the guys wore and the looked like in that period. Today’s hot rodders, who are interested in the traditional style of hot rod, will find the book a gold mine of ideas for their projects.
