While the focus today is more on driving hot rods over racing them, so the term “Street Rod” was coined to denote a vehicle manufactured prior to 1949, often with a more reliable late model drive train. Street Rodding as it was now known was a different phenomenon than hot rodding, as street rodding was mainly family-oriented. National events are hosted by the National Street Rod Association (NSRA), which also stressed safety as the NHRA did 20 years before.
– The majority of our vehicles come from local, private owners and collectors, and many were sold new in California. We appreciate that rust free cars, with excellent documentation and history are especially attractive to our buyers both locally, and around the country. As a result, we do not purchase our collectible cars from “distressed” sales, such as wholesale auctions, salvage sales, or lien sales.
