Hot Rods: Roadsters, Coupes, Customs
When it comes to building your hot rod, youâ€™re faced with choices for everything from which go-fast goodies to slap on your mill to what paint and other eye candy might define your rod more than anything else. And when it comes to a hot rod, parts arenâ€™t just parts; itâ€™s all in how they come together--either it works or it doesnâ€™t.
This new Motorbooks Idea Book covers every system of a traditional hot rodâ€”be it roadster, coupe, or tubâ€”illustrating with hundreds of color photos the various options for frame rails, suspension, steering, brakes, wheels and tires, drivetrain, electrics, cooling, body, interior, and paint. Looking through this book, youâ€™ll be able to assess which choices fit your aesthetic sensibility as well as how they suit your plan to use your hot rod. Youâ€™ll also get the â€œbig pictureâ€?--a clear idea of how some choices work together and others just donâ€™t mesh in the same car. Whether youâ€™re looking for inspiration or practical answers, this book will guide you from off-the-shelf, fabricated, and even found parts and pieces to the finished hot rod of your dreams.
