Hot Rod:The Photography of Peter Vincent
Author: Peter Vincent
Aesthetics are at the core of hot rodding. And nothing captures the visual essence of the hot rod like Peter Vincent's photography. In brilliant color and fully-saturated black-and-white photography, Vincent captures America's most essential hot rods, hot rodders, and racers in dramatic settings such as the Bonneville Salt Flats and Californias dry lakes - the places from which hot rodders have always drawn inspiration. Throughout the book, Vincent tells the story of hot rodding through interviews with the originators of the culture, land speed racers, and the new generation of hot rodders who are keeping alive the aesthetic sensibility of hot rodding.
