This book elegantly delves in to the rarely seen archive of amazing photos taken by the late Strother MacMinn. The black and white images depict the golden era of hot rodding during the years after World War II. The book is divided into three sections, Hot Rods, Customs, and The Dry Lakes. Each section features magnificent, full-page photographs accompanied by detailed and informative captions written by TRJ Senior Contributing Writer, Ken Gross.
