Street Rod & Custom Showtime

Street Rod & Custom Showtime takes a succinct view of the birth and
development of the American show circuit, and then a concentrated look at the
evolution of the indoor custom shows in Britain: from their humble beginnings in the early ’60s, through the explosive growth of the ‘70s, into the victorious ‘80s when UK customs appeared at the USA Grande Finale in Las Vegas, culminating in
an Englishman’s victory at Oakland, the world’s greatest custom show.

Those first twenty years to 1982: with over 110 indoor hot rod and
custom car shows, where craftsmanship and inherent talent stepped to the fore, where specialist magazines flourished and where the indoor
shows were our showcase to the world.

This book is not the work of one man but rather, the anecdotes, memories
and photographs of nearly one hundred of those who were there -
as exhibitors, as organisers, as visitors, as journalists - all of whom,
by their enthusiasm, contributed to make it what it was -
a chrome plated, candy coloured extravaganza of creativity.

The book will be officially launched at the NSRA Billing Fun Run
at the end of this month ( MAY ) and early numbered copies will be available.
Only 1000 copies have been printed so, pre-order now
to ensure you don't miss out.
