IN THE EARLY DAYS OF HOT RODDING, FAST FORDS TOOK MANY SHAPES

Prewar Ford Profiles

“Hot rod”… “hop-up”… “gow-job”… People have been modifying cars for performance since they were horses (some sources believe the latter two terms derive from doping ponies). So, a special section dedicated to early Fords would be incomplete without touching upon hot rodding, as no automobile in history has been altered more frequently. It might be cliché to say, but literally open the dictionary to “hot rod,” and you’d not be surprised to see a picture of a Deuce roadster there.
