Until 1946, hot rodding was generally considered a preoccupation of gearheads and juvenile delinquents. That all changed when car-crazy vets returned from the war with sophisticated mechanical training, courtesy of Uncle Sam. This is the story of how one such ex-airman helped transform hot rodding from a scruffy underground curiosity into a defining part of American culture. 192 pages with numerous photographs, many in color, bibliography and index. Fine in fine and bright dust jacket. Appears as new.
