The All-American Hot Rod
Editor: Michael Dregni
Hot rods have made legends, taking the spotlight in all aspects of the beach culture, in movies, and in music. They represent youth, rebellion, and a drive to do things a little differently. The hot rod movement has always been a grassroots, groundswell movement, an underground art form that defies a straightforward chronicle succinctly tied up with a bow. The All-American Hot Rod is a history by those who lived it, the numerous voices and images of people who know and love the hot rod like nothing else. Itís truly an all-American tale with an exhaust note heard íround the world. If youíre still in awe of that first hot rod, still driving and tuning hot rods, or still dreaming of hot rods, then this book is for you.
