THE HOT ROD STORY

We are excited to now be offering a limited number of signed copies of Alex Xydias’ classic film, The HOT ROD STORY, now available on DVD. “The HOT ROD STORY” runs 70 minutes long in full color and features the men and machines that helped make hot rodding one of the most popular automotive sports in the world. An action-packed, often humorous, always exciting film in rare, exclusive footage, covers four decades in the growth of the truly American automotive sport of hot rodding. The HOT ROD STORY begins in the 1930's with "hopped up" roadsters racing across dry lake beds of Southern California's Mojave Desert where many of performance industry's first products were tested by young men like Edelbrock, Weiand, Iskendarian and Hilborn. The film depicts the explosion of competition after World War II. The growth of car clubs, the birth of HOT ROD Magazine and the formation of the National Hot Rod Association... all instrumental in spreading the work Eastward until "Hot Rodding" became a national phenomenon.

HOT ROD HEAVEN
The Definitive Story of an American Passion

The cult of hot rodding took root in 1940s America, amongst young enthusiasts with little or no money who were eager to play around with what was still a novel piece of machinery. Today specimens can sell for upwards of $1 million, and the popularity of these unique combinations of classic designs and state-of-the-art engines and chassis just keeps on growing. This fascinating program traces the evolution of the hot rod - from its post-war explosion in California, through the days of illegal street-racing, to the international spectator sport of drag racing. Along the way, we interview the people who have shaped this phenomenon, including Alex Xydias, Pete Chapouris, Tony Thacker, Jimmy Shine, and Andy & Roy Brizio. We pay a visit to the Bonneville Salt Flats, regarded as one of the birthplaces of hot rodding, to break the 200mph record with the guys from the "So-Cal Speed Shop." Plus, we check out the Grand National Roadster Show in San Francisco, and the biggest nostalgia drag race in Famosa, CA - capturing plenty of tire smoke, ear-splitting noise and awesome speeds! Finally, we search out some of today's coolest street machines back at the "So-Cal Speed Shop" and "Roy Brizio Street Rods." Recreated using a mixture of archive and modern footage, alongside insightful interviews with the men who made it happen, this is the story of an American passion and the desire to build a dream.
