The Hot Rods of Summer

Hot rods are the ultimate in automotive expression. From a traditional chop to a completely radical build the time, effort, and craftsmanship that goes into a hot rod. It is why hot rods are some of our favorites vehicles to see out and about at the shows, the salt, or wherever they can be found. So today we look at a few of our favorites from the summer so far. Fall here in the Midwest is a whole new season when it comes to car gatherings so it seem appropriate to take a short look back tonight.


Of course pictured above is a great hot rod from Bonneville. Bonneville was made for hot rods.
