Whether it's a beefed-up V-8 or a lowered chop-top, a rockabilly ride or restored Model T, hot rods and custom cars drive the speed and style of car culture to a whole new plane. In a book that features some of the most beautiful rods and customs, author and photographer Bo Bertilsson burns film and rubber visiting events from Las Vegas to Paso Robles, chronicling the restoration of his own T-bucket, and offering an up-close look at rockabilly cars, including one owned by Jeff Beck. His book—with its vast cast of characters in their 20s and 30s, many embracing the culture right down to the hairstyles and clothes—offers head-turning testimony to a hot-rod and custom-car revival well underway.
