Hot Rod Kings: Top Traditional Rod and Custom Builders Hardcover – June 15, 2007
Customers who bought this item also bought
Motorbar.co.uk (UK), June 18, 2007“Hot Rod Kings, by Kevin Thomson, is written in a quite intimate way to make you feel you are being taken on a personal trip through the U.S. to the workshops of eleven of today's most highly respected hot rod builders and customizers – meeting larger than life characters and meaner than mean machines on the way. Thomson and Perry get to the heart of what makes today's hot rodders tick; we discover where these men came from, what inspires them, and what their day-to-day lives are really like. With Perry's photography of the shop operations, cars in progress and some of the finished rods accompanied by the prose of Kevin ‘BoBo Tech’ Thomson, this is a tasty slice of the true hot rod way of life.”
CruZin’ Magazine, August 2007
“This book won’t tell you how to do bodywork or upholstery, but for the young guys who yearn to restyle cars it can point the way to a career.”
Ol’ Skool Rodz, January 2008“OK, go ahead and call whoever your personal Santa Claus is and put this one on your Xmas list. You’re gonna want it … This book is one that’ll serve a dual purpose – it will inform and inspire … This is possibly the best book about hot rod/custom car builders to come out in at least the past five years … Thomson writes in a simple, conversational style that benefits his subjects. Perry’s photos reveal the same down-to-earth impression.”
From the Inside Flap
Hot Rod Kings takes the reader into the lives and garages of 11 of today’s most highly respected hot rod builders and customizers. Cole Foster, Scott Mugford, The Kennedy Brothers, Mercury Charlie, Sean Johnstun, Keith Tardel, Rudy Rodriguez, Mike Smith, Jimmy White, and Gary Howard are all consummate craftsmen, pouring their substantial skills and knowledge into many of the tightest traditionally styled hot rods and custom cars you’ll see anywhere. No billet trailer trash or TV studio garages here. Photographer David Perry and writer Kevin Thomson spent time with each of the featured builders to bring you the inside stories of where these men came from, what inspires them, and what their day-to-days are truly all about. Perry’s photography of the subjects’ shop operations and cars in progress, as well as some of the finished rods, is accompanied by the jumping and knowledgeable prose of Kevin “BoBo Tech” Thomson, resulting in a tasty slice of the true hot rod way of life.
