Artist's Description

Hot rods are typically American cars with large engines modified for linear speed. The origin of the term “hot rod” is unclear. One explanation is that the term is a contraction of “hot roadster,” meaning a roadster that was modified for speed. Roadsters were the cars of choice because they were light. The term became commonplace in the 1930s or 1940s as the name of a car that had been “hopped up” by modifying the engine in various ways to achieve higher performance.

It’s a 1930 Ford Tudor, chopped 7 inches in the roof, body chopped 3 inches off the bottom and channeled. I chose the 20" Joe Martin wheels to go away with the common rod with steel wheels and white walls…just wanted something different.
