Hot Rods in the Forties by Don Montgomery Hot Rods in the Forties. SCTA - THE CLUBS - RUSSETTA - HOT ROD SHOWS - EL MIRAGE - HOT ROD MAGAZINE. This book is for rodders of all ages. Older hot rodders will remember names and rods and perhaps a lot of memories. Young street rodders will see what the early street rods were like and the ideas that resulted in the street rods of today. The 1940's were the most important and most exciting period in the history of hot rodding. 

Today's separate and distinct activities of street rodding, drag racing, lakes time trials and Custom cars have all evolved from the hot rods of the 1940's. In addition hot rodders have had a major influence on all areas of automotive related activities from racing to styling to design and manufacturing. But over fifty years ago hot rodding included the whole thing. The rodders built, altered, and maintained their own rods. Working on the rods provided a good "hands-on" education for the owners. And of course driving and testing at the lakes or on the street was more than half the fun. 

This book presents a look at 1940's hot rodding through the pictures from rodders' photo albums. Naturally the emphasis is put on showing the hot rods of that period. Roadsters, coupes, and sedans are shown on the streets and at the lakes. Information about the cars, the owners, clubs and speeds are included with the photos. Hard bound. 144 Pages.
