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!

Day four was the shortest for me, I regret that I only discovered Toyo Tires awesome treadpass as I was leaving as it may have had the sum total of the coolest metal at the event. Enjoy day four:
