40 Years At HOT ROD, the Marlan Davis Saga

 

Forty years at one company is crazy, but that’s the landmark we’re celebrating for HOT ROD’s very unique, devoted, and walking GM part-number catalog, Marlan Davis. Forty years! You know him as HOT ROD’s Tech Editor par excellence—and he’s that, for sure.

Community. The seeds of this hot rod buildup go back to when Colby Martin was a teenager in high school, scrounging around for parts to build a car.

“A guy in town built fat-fender Fords, and I asked him if he had any hot rod parts. He did, an original Ford axle with heated and stretched ends. I paid him $60 for it, brought it home, and said to my dad, ‘We can build a hot rod now.’ He said, ‘Good. Tell your mom I need tools.’
