American Hot Rod
How to Build a Hot Rod with Boyd Coddington
Author: Dennis W. Parks
The ultimate hot rod "how to" book from the popular Discovery Channel series includes photography from the show's set and covers planning, budgeting, and all the steps involved in creating a Hot Rod.
The hot rod is a primal creation, a simple machine built to look good and sound even better. In Discovery Channel's American Hot Rod series, legendary builder Boyd Coddington leads his team through the at-times arduous task of building hot rods. With How to Build a Hot Rod with Boyd Coddington, you can create a tangerine-striped baby of your own, as you go step by step from the drawing board to a ready-to-drive hot rod.
The book also includes guidance on choosing the proper car as a starting point, selecting and preparing a frame, adding suspension and drivetrain components, body modifications such as chopping, channeling and custom paint, and finishing off your rod with a tricked-out interior.
