Hot-rods have been one of the most unique and talked about vehicles around, dating back to the early 1900’s. Their narrow bodies and wide-wheel based design with big engine assembly coming out of the hood is the typical “classic hot-rod” design, but as the years have gone by, many other accessories and designs have been incorporated in the customization of these gorgeous vehicles. Many hot-rods are older “vintage” cars that have changed their body types and a much more powerful engine has been added. These cars were designed for racing and high-speed highway driving. It’s safe to say that hot-rods are built like no other car.
How many times in a year do you catch yourself staring at a beautiful car, like a customized hot rod or a newly restored vintage car, wondering who the owner is, or imagining yourself owning and driving that car? According to a study conducted by AAA foundation for traffic safety, Americans spend an average of more than 17,600 minutes driving every year.

One of the toughest parts of owning a collector car is keeping it in mint condition and maintaining its fresh off the line look and parts.

It could be the car you always dreamt of owning or the one that you sold when life got in the way, but when you see it rolling down a city street, that moving time capsule of miraculous engineering and swoon-worthy looks, you’re sixteen again and you just have to have it!
