About this book
If you grew up reading the classic "green pages" in Hot Rod magazine - or even if you didn't - you're going to love with lavish look inside some of the coolest hot rods around. In the old days the "green pages" information was great, but the photos left something to be desired. Writer/photography Doug Mitchel has changed all that by teaming the same kind of essential information with his outstanding photography.&break;&break;In Anatomy of the Hot Rod Doug tells you about everything that goes into building a world-class hot rod, then "hooks you up" with the unforgettable visual imagery of "crate" 350s, triple-carb flathead V-8S, chromed Halibrand rear ends, beefed-up gearboxes, shiny Jag suspensions and jewel-like Stewart-Warner gauge clusters. If you're into owning or building a knock-your-socks-off hot rod of any variety - nostalgic Old Skool, classic "rat rod" or High-Tech contemporary, this is the book you need on the shelf in your garage.

    Great wheel, Greater Amazon Service

    I rated the purchase as 5 star, but I would add another star to rate Amazon's service. I was a bit skeptical about buying custom wheels on line as to issues of correct fit and appearance. I was also dealing with retrofitting a '51 Chevy to the wheels. 1) The American RacingTorq Thrust II wheels look great and are high quality 2) Amazon pricing was the best in the country as I did multiple searches 3) Amazon's delivery and after the sale service were amazing beyond anything imaginable. I had a warranty issue arising from a manufacture's problem. American Racing advised I would have to go through Amazon. It had been 8 weeks since purchase which is 4 weeks past the 4 week window for automatic returns to Amazon. I sent an e-mail to Amazon customer service explaining my issue and referenced the order number. Two HOURS later I received an e-mail asking whether I would like new merchandise or a credit.

    POOR support by American Racing over design flaw

    Let me say I LOVE the look of the wheels. And the PVD chrome coating makes them easy to care for and should hopefully ensure a long shiny life. However, a technical design flaw mars an otherwise great experience. Seems that the generic center cap that is provided by ARE partially blocks the lug holes. This means that in order to fit a socket (even thin walled) onto the lug nuts, the center caps have to be removed. This entails removing 5 tiny allen-head screws. Picture doing this in the dark or the rain at the side of the road. On top of that, the quality of the allen screws varies and the depths and size of the allen heads are different between several, so a few different sizes of allen wrenches are needed to remove. These tiny screws will surely be a problem on cars that see any real weather (mine does not). I have pursued help from American Racing (now owned and run by Wheel Pros) since last summer. They did send me a set of caps that had been crudely drill out some to allow for... 3/5 david - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) Let me say I LOVE the look of the wheels.

    The wheel itself is a really good looking piece

    3/5 Jim B. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: American Racing Hot Rod TTO VN309 Painted Gray Wheel with Machined Lip (15x7"/5x4.75") (Automotive) The wheels were not the correct size as advertised. They state 4.25" backspacing which is not correct. They are actually 3.75" backspacing and may not fit for your application, which was the case with me and I now have to return them. The wheel itself is a really good looking piece, shipped in American Racing package and I wish they fit my car.
