“If you grew up reading the classic “”green pages”” in HOT ROD magazine – (or even if you didn’t) — you’re going to love this lavish look inside some of the coolest hot rods around.
In the old days the “”green pages”” information was great, but the photos left something to be desired. Writer/photographer Doug Mitchel has changed all that by teaming the same kind of essential information with his outstanding photography.
In Anatomy of the Hot Rod Doug tells you about everything that goes into building a world-class hot rod, then “”hooks you up”” with the unforgettable visual imagery of “”crate”” 350s, triple-carb flathead V-8s, chromed Haibrand rear ends, beefed-up gearboxes, shiny Jag suspensions and jewel-like Stewart-Warner gauge clusters.
If you’re into owning or building a knock-your-socks-off hot rod of any variety – nostalgic Old Skool, classic “”rat rod”” or High-Tech contemporary, this is the book you need on the shelf in your garage.”
