Sema: The hot rods

The term “Hot Rod” means many things to many people. To me today, for the sake of this post, mean roughly ’30s to ’40s cars and trucks modified in an appealing manner.

Side note: I do not know much about these old things. I can usually identify a Ford but that’s about it. Please comment with what a particular make and model is if you know it!
