Since the 1950s, model manufacturers have based plastic kits on the concept drawings and show cars of such hot rod gurus as Ed Roth and George Barris. Today, auction websites like ebay.com and amazon.com are filled with these highly coveted kits; and collectors are willing to shell out tidy sums for unassembled examples. This full-color retrospective offers a company-by-company history of hot rod model kits from the likes of Monogram, Revell, MPC, and AMT. The story behind each company's involvement with the custom scene and discussions of key customizers are accompanied by studio shots of assembled kits, sales catalogs and period advertising, photo collages of the most famous models, and the marvelous box art that became a hallmark of hot rod model kits.
