European Hot Rod and Custom Show

European Hot Rod and Custom Show
© Hot Rods & custom show 2014

Discover these original racing cars of which the concepts come straight from the United States. On the legendary racing track in Chimay from 27/06 to 29/06/14!

But what is a Hot Rod? It is an old car (1949), hugely modified, as much the engine as the exterior, and always Ford. Hot Rods appeared around 1935: the soldiers demobilised (after the Second World War) came home dreaming of English sport cars, that still didn't exist in the US. Their measly military pensions enabled them to only be able to buy cars from before the war. They decided therefore to make some modifications to their cars, notably by adapting them to have modern V8 engines...a phenomenon was born! 


A phenomenon that would be deeply engraved in the culture of young Americans of that era and would be exported throughout the world thanks to television and some famous bands, such as ZZTop, that would make Hot Rod their trademark.
