In this fully illustrated personal look at the culture of hot rods and customised vehicles in Australia, veteran author Joel Wakely has gathered together dozens of fascinating stories about many of these incredible cars – and other vehicles – and the passionate craftspeople, amateur and professional, who build them. Here he covers the full spectrum of modified vehicles, from the ‘looks like factory’ cars, that appear as if they’ve just come off the production line but hide impressive internal modifications, to the full-on, eye-popping hot rods that display their uniqueness with gusto. With contributions from dozens of hot rod and custom enthusiasts about their incredible cars, plus hundreds of photographs, many never before seen in print, this is a hot rod book like no other, a book from the heart that goes deep into the passion that these unique vehicles engender.
