Here are the real pioneers of Hot Rodding - racing lakes in mid-century, breaking records, and by sheer ingenuity transforming discarded car bodies, flathead V-8's, four-bangers into the cars of myth and legend. In essays by the most respected hot-rodding journalists today, the icons of early days come alive, and the full history of hot-rodding unfolds in all it's gritty glory. Complementing the writing are never-before-seen photographs from the American Hot Rod Foundation, sure to be as interesting as the writing itself: Robert genat explores the symyiosis between the US military and hot rodders in World war II; Pat Ganahl delves into the birth of the belly tank and it's effect on the sport; Greg Sharpe looks at hot rodding's effect on the development of circle-track racing; Gingerelli examines how sanctioning quater-mile drag racing increased hot rodding's growth; Ken Gross documents the growth of hot reodding media, and it's impact in the Motorsport world; Mark Mortron shows why hot rodding will always remain close to it's roots; and Alex Xydias, the founder of the So-Cal Speed Shop, writes a specially commissioned introduction.
