  • Author Brent VanDervort Of Fatman Fabrication

  • 144 Pages, 50,000 Words

  • Useful For Building Classic Street Rods To Modern Resto-Mod Vehicles


 


For over 14 years Brent VanDervort, owner of Fatman Fabrications, has written a technical column for the Goodguy's Gazette, the monthly publication of the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association. His new book, Building Hot Rods: 30 Years of Advice from Fatman Fabrications Brent VanDervort, combines the best of those columns into one book. Hot rodding has changed from being primarily populated by the mechanics and hands-on workers of years ago. Today, many Rodders have the enthusiasm, but lack practical experience for the problem solving that makes building a hot rod such an enjoyable adventure. VanDervort's columns, respected and well read all these years, are designed to answer the questions of those car builders and customizers. An engineering degree and 30 years of experience designing and building some of the most innovative hot rod chassis components in the world give VanDervort a unique perspective on the technical side of hot rodding. With 144 pages, over 50,000 words and 200 photos and illustrations, Building Hot Rods: 30 Years of Advice from Fatman Fabrication's Brent VanDervort, gives both new, and experienced hot rodders and car builders the information they need. Whether it's help installing a front frame clip in an old Ford, or solving a problem with an aftermarket fuel injection system installed in a early Mustang, the answers that current car builders need are all here.

Hot Rod Milestones Book By Ken Gross & Robert Genat

  • Covers 25 Of The Most Infuential Hot Rods Ever

  • Ken Gross Author, Robert Genat Photographer

  • 192 Pages, 370 Black & White And Color Photographs

  • Softcover


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; and 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.
