Post World War ll was a time of ‘catching up’ on what had been missed by our young men while away fighting for our country.  They loved automobiles and wanted to improve their car’s power, speed, efficiency and looks.  Testing them on the dry lakes of California and the Bonneville Salt Flats of Utah proved not only effective, but a popular sport as well.  When it comes to the automobile, there is really nothing very new under the sun; almost entirely the stepchild ideas of those who came before us from Europe.  Hot Rods however, are purely an AMERICAN PHENOMENON.  No easy task in a global think tank that has been brewing for a long time.  Hot Rods are an important part of our culture.  They had their beginnings here in America and we can proudly call them our own.  This AMERICAN ICON has since spread to every nation in the world.
