Shifting Gears - Hot Rod Market Update
About this product:
Each of us may have different definitions of what constitutes a “hot rod,” but we all know one when we see it. The classification can encompass anything from a ’27 T-bucket roadster to a current-model Mustang, from a ’67 Camaro to a ’92 pickup, from a four-door station wagon to an early-‘80s Malibu. Only a few years ago, those last two might have raised some eyebrows among performance aficionados, but the wobbly economy and an aging consumer base have led to even greater latitude in what hot rodders consider acceptable raw material, and the segment’s manufacturers have obliged with an ever-expanding portfolio of parts from which to choose.
