Every pastime has its greats, and hot rodding is no exception. Once in a
while, a hot rodder puts together a car that's so right and so well done
that it becomes an instant icon in the rodding world. These cars
represent a clear vision that sets the standard for others to follow.
They have been imitated, coveted, and revered; today, many have been
painstakingly restored for private collections or museum display.
Hot Rod Milestones covers 25 of the most influential, innovative hot
rods ever built from the late 1940s to the mid-1960s. These cars include
the Niekamp roadster, Isky's T, the Pearson Brothers coupe, Doane
Spencer's '32, the So-Cal '34 coupe, The Pacific Gunsight Special, and
Roth's Outlaw T. Each car's history, technical background, and influence
are discussed, along with information on the builders and owners. Photos
include contemporary shots of the cars as they exist today, along with
vintage photos of the cars when they were first built and shown.
With Ken Gross' deep knowledge of the genre, and Robert Genat's
well-trained lens, this new paperback edition is an important addition
to any hot rodder's library.
