The history of the Hot Rod magazine started back in 1948 when the first magazine was issued. The magazine has since launched a new issue each month and is now officially the oldest magazine devoted to hot rodding.
The magazine is celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2013 and to celebrate this special event, the staff hosted a once-in-a-lifetime car show: a collection of 300-plus cover and feature cars from the pages of the mag, dating all the way back to the magazine’s debut year.
However, until the September issue of Hot Rod arrives in stores and mailboxes, you can take a look at this video. You will learn lots of details on many of the cars featured in the magazine. You will also hear insight from magazine’s staff members past and present, as well as visits with hot rodding legends such as TV Tommy Ivo and Roland Leong.
