Hot Rod Garages

Hot Rod Garages Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the garages and shops of eighteen modern street rod, hot rod, and custom car builders, as presented by bestselling hot rod photographer and author Peter Vincent. From the state-of-the-art setups of street rod giants to the private lairs of old-school hot rodders, these are the hallowed grounds where countless hours are spent machining, wrenching, welding, and shaping—and where likeminded friends entertain one another while they bring their visions rumbling to life. Featured are:

 

Roy Brizio

Pete Eastwood

Cole Foster

Pat Foster

Cam Grant

John Gunsaulis

Gary Harms

Terry Hegman

Ron Jolliffe

Bob Lick

Steve Moal

Dick Page

The Rolling Bones

Don Small

Cal Tanaka

Vern & Keith Tardel

Billy Vinther

Dale Withers

 

Throughout, Vincent depicts these builders and their cars in the context of their workspaces, in the process showing how their garages inform their art. The result is the next best thing to being there—an exquisitely presented book that distills the varying nature of hot rod garages and the cars created within.

Synopsis:

An intimate look into the garages that produce great hot rods and custom cars, with a view on how each space informs the builder's creations.

Synopsis:

Acclaimed hot rod photographer Peter Vincent takes readers into the shops and garages of more than two dozen rod and custom builders across the U.S. Hot Rod Garages shows how these work spaces inform and reflect each custom creation, whether of individuals crafting the cars of their dreams or prominent shops turning out cool rides for top dollar. The book offers an intimate look into the garages of legends like Pete Eastwood and shops such as Rolling Bones; celebrated builders-for-hire like Vern Tardel, and Cole Foster; and top-of-the-line shops such as Brizio Street Rods and Steve Moal’s operation.

Synopsis:

In Hot Rod Garages, acclaimed hot rod photographer Peter Vincent takes readers inside the shops and garages of more than two dozen of the United States’ most renowned rod and custom builders.

Synopsis:

You’ve seen the hot rods and custom rides, even looked into the hot rodding lifestyle, but what about where it all starts—in the garages humble or grand where countless hours of machining and wrenching, welding and shaping, elbow grease and inspiration bring a hot rodder’s vision to life.  In this book, acclaimed hot rod photographer Peter Vincent takes readers into the shops and garages of more than two dozen rod and custom builders across the U.S. From individuals crafting the cars of their dreams to prominent shops turning out cool rides for top dollar, these are the builders in their element. 

  For the hot rod builder, a working environment takes on a whole new meaning; and here, in fascinating pictures and words, readers learn how shops and garages inform and reflect each custom creation. The book offers an intimate look into the garages of legends like Pete Eastwood and shop such as Rolling Bones; celebrated builders-for-hire like Vern Tardel, and Cole Foster; and top-of-the-line shops such as Brizio Street Rods and Steve Moal’s operation. The result is the next best thing to being there—a book that vividly summons the nature of these spaces and the cars they produce.
