Racing in the desert
Hot rods first appeared in the late 1930s in southern California, where racing cars on the dry lake beds northeast of Los Angeles had become a popular passtime. To increase their chances of winning a race, people began modifying ordinary cars to make them faster.
After World War II, the popularity of “hot rodding” increased, partly because many of the former soldiers coming home had recieved a mechanical training that they could now put to use on their own cars. There were also plenty of small military airports dotted around the country that could now be use for racing, since the war was over and they had been left abandoned or just rarely used. No longer was access to flat desert environments a necessity, and this helped spread the hotrodding hobby to various parts of the U.S.
Back in the day, a majority of the modified cars at hot rod events were old domestic ones (which could be bought cheap), such as Model T Fords, 1928-1931 Model A Fords, or 1932-1934 Model B Fords. To make them go faster, weight was shed, and tinkering with the engine or replacing it with something more powerful was also popular. Also, wheels and tires could be changed to improve traction and handling. Examples of elements that were commonly removed from these old cars to reduce the weight of the vehicle were windshields, bumpers, fenders, convertible tops, and even hoods.
The 1950s and 1960s
In the 1950s and 1960s, hotrodders took advantage of the many new inventions and creations that had become available to better their cars, such as replacing the traditional mechanical breaks with hydraulic ones, and discarding bulb headlights in favor of sealed-beam options. Also, the Chrysler FirePower engine (“the early hemi”) became very popular.
