Rick Osentoski has a list of the hottest of the country’s hot rods (over 40 pages of clicks and ads but some great cars).
Last weekend in Detroit, the top hot rod builders in the country gathered for the 63rd annual Autorama show and the annual competition for the Don Ridler Memorial Trophy, given each year to the most impressive custom car. While the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster title goes only to older cars, the Ridler is open to anything — and this year’s winner demonstrates the skill needed to blend old and new engineering into something unique.
My favorite? A 1959 Rambler American Wagon.
