About this title

Synopsis:

With the grace and style of a souped-up Seville -- and published to coincide with the annual race extravaganza at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah -- Hot Rod captures the American obsession with speed, thrills, and cars in this unparalleled collection of photographs. From the chop shops of East Bakersfield to the drag strips and deserts of California and Utah, David Perry's photographs expose the underbelly of the hot rod obsession. Greasers, gearheads, dragstrip beatniks, rockabilly queens, and hopped-up machines of all kinds are featured in this evocative tribute. Barry Gifford, best-selling author of Wild at Heart, adds an original novelette about Danny and his paramour, Yolanda, in a tale of Airstreams and Lucky Strikes that captures perfectly the rebellious spirit of the images.

About the Author:

Barry Gifford is the author of Wild at Heart and Perdita Durango, both of which have been made into feature films, as well as Night People, Arise and Walk, and Baby Cat-Face.
