All of these photos are the real thing from long ago. Thus, it's a completely authentic experience of just what the cars, girls, hot rods, fashions, dragsters ,etc looked like back then. Scant text except for captions but that's not a minus. These great old photos speak for themselves. A great little book!

I LOVE vintage hot rods and custom cars. This is one of the best (if not the best) book of it's type that I've seen. Mostly all-color VINTAGE photos of cars from the fifties and the scene that surrounded it (covering other aspects like magazines, models, stickers, t-shirts, record/book covers, etc.) Wow! The photos are amazing. This is the real stuff. And there's no text to gunk things up (just a nice introduction). It's a smaller book - digest sized - but oh so cool! Any Rockabilly or Rat Rodder will love this.

This is a great way to start your vintage Hot Rod and Custom Car library with excellent photos and a well rounded selection of typical cars. Mildly disappointing for the experienced aficionado because there is nothing really new and the format is a bit small (Pocket sized + per the publisher's name). But still well worth your time and a welcome addition to your Hot Rod and Custom Car bookshelf.

The main problem of this book is it's size. It's just so small you have to squint to see the details of the otherwise nice photos. For the most part the photos are authentic, but there is a lack of consistency among them (for example, a 1950's picture of an engine may be right next one picture taken in 2009 making it the layout a little odd.) I would not recommend this book.
