Hot Rod Gallery

Hot Rod Gallery by Pat Ganahl

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  If that is true, then this book is priceless!

A book loaded with beautiful photographs, both black and white and in color, of the golden years of hot rods.  Any classic car lover will thoroughly enjoy this book.

Some photos may look familiar, others have probably never been seen before.  With just a touch of history behind the photos and hot rodding in general, this will keep you turning the pages.  Broken down into chapters, starting in the early 1900’s and ending with with 1950’s, you will return to this book over and over again.

Not a history lesson, but rather one man’s search into the history of hot rodding.
