Hot Rods: The term seems to inspire the imagination. Drive-in's, hoop skirts and duck-tails. Elvis and Buddy Holly on the radio. The original idea of a Hot Rod was, take an old car and chop it down. This cuts down on the weight. The roof, the hood, fender and bumpers could all go. Then lower it. Hot rods may have been the original low riders! Tune it up and add some fat tires and wheels and you've got a hot rod!

The original idea of a true Hot Rod was a cheap, fast, stripped down, mean machine. A Rat Rod. Hot Rods began to hit the streets around the end of World War Two. It was 1945 and there were a lot of old cars around that were being scrapped. But the tin was good, and cheap. All you needed to do was find an new engine and running gear, chop it and Hot Rod it. As the culture continued to grow, the cars and styles got more elaborate, wild and expensive, and more people began fixing up and then offering their hot rods for sale.

By around 1965 the original hot rod era was fading as the car manufacturers were catching on and the era of the muscle car, performance cars right from the factory, was beginning. Original hotrods are much sought after collectors items and we have lots of hot rods for sale. Whether you are looking for a classic "T-Bucket" based on a chopped down Model-T Ford or something with a Ford flathead V8 there are a wide variety of cars to chose from. Big wheels, big engines, lots of chrome and wild paint work are all hallmarks of classic hot rod cars. They are fun to drive and are always guaranteed to turn heads where ever you go.
