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. But Marlan is somewhat of a mystery, even to the staff, as his desert residence in Neenach, California, isolates him from city hustle and bustle, making commutes into Los Angeles a long haul and sightings at the HOT ROD mothership rare.

Great article on Marlan Davis from Thom Taylor here at The Hot Rod Network
