But before you try to collect it, it’s also a good idea if you first know what Hot Rods really is, so that it is more interesting to collect it. So the Hot Rods actually appeared between the era of the 1930-1040s. Hmm, that time before the World War (PD) II. Before the term hot rod appeared this style of modification is still known as ‘
Well, don’t imagine that the car that was modified at that time had a standard race engine. It turns out that the modified cars are daily cars at low prices. Actually, the term ‘hot rod’ itself is not clear who named it and popularized it. the term appeared probably because of the replacement of the car’s camshaft for the race with the ‘hotter’ version.
Cars that are modified to form hot rods are mostly Ford type A and type T because the price is cheap and easy to find. Understandably, the cars became a ‘million people’ car in his day. A major overhaul was carried out on these cars by removing all components that were deemed unnecessary. One of them, disappearing the body on the engine that became one of the forerunners of the birth of a chop shop or naked machine. Here is the most important part of the modification of the hot rod model. They apply the concept of aerodynamics by installing small tires on the front and large at the rear.
Unfortunately, the era of hot rod racing around the 1940s had to stop temporarily. You see, the young people of the United States must go to war in the era of World War II. The situation worsened after car manufacturers were directed to make military vehicles. Most car manufacturers start making planes and tanks instead of cars. In addition, the government also limits the amount of fuel for the community. But
But in the 1940s the car used was different from the previous one. At that time they modified cars like the Chevrolet Sedan, or Ford Model B. They also used new places as racing venues like the abandoned military base at that time. Over time, because of the popularity of Hot Rod increasingly rampant, the National Hot Rod Association was formed in 1951. The goal was for their racing to be more formal, targeted and avoid wild races on public roads.
Through these associations, several branches of hot rod racing emerged, such as street rods, and there were also straight track drags. But even though in the past year’s hot rods have returned to crowded, the ups and downs of the hot rod trend have not been finished. In the 1960s hot rod also began to dim because it slowly began to be replaced with more modern machines. Ford’s flathead engine began to switch to Chrysler’s engine. In addition, the emergence of the ‘muscle car’ in the 1970s also began to shift the era of hot rod, because without the engine cracking this car already has tremendous power, plus more expensive fuel and the economic decline of the United States, hot rod-style cars are increasingly
Modern era Hot-Rods
Hot rods lovers finally began to modify the old cars produced in the 1920s and 1940s. In the 1980s the hot rod era faded but was not completely gone. Yes, only some people have more money who want to maintain this type of car, bro. At that time the hot rod was divided into two groups. The first is those who focus on nostalgia for cars in the 1950s, and the second group is those who focus more on modifying the exterior of the car. Now, getting here, hot rods are indeed increasingly recognized by many people, especially in the custom world. But in contrast to the initial birth when the hot rod was identical to the race, now they are more focused on the outside appearance.
