All forms of car obsession have a lot to do with visual impact, Hot Rodding especially so. So when coming across a book called 'Hot Rod Reader' you would be forgiven for thinking that its going to be of limited appeal, especially when you've been brought up on Hot Rod magazines which are 80% glossy photo's. But it has to be said that in last few years at least there has been an increase in the quantity and quality of written work in such magazines ( yes , I am thinking particularly- but not exclusively - of Rodders Journal) or so I thought.....
This is a fascinating book to sit a slowly digest as it features written works carefully selected by the editors from over many decades and shows the depth of writings of this sort that has always been around.
It is quite and eye opener to read original articles by legends such as Ed Roth (He writes how he must have spoken, great fun!) Le Roi 'Tex' Smith, Dean Moon, Bob Hirohata and even Wally Parks, and one or two great stories like 'Bud Crayne, Boy Hot Rodder' by Henry Gregor Felsen.
All in all it gives a great overview of the Psychcology of Hot Rodding and the motivation of its devotees.
It's a real education and fills in a lot of the gaps in history that younger Rodders may have missed. Well worth a read.
