The hot rod scene is one that as much as it progresses and moves forward, always has one foot firmly planted in the past. This is as much down to the vintage vehicles that dominate the scene as anything else. The early days of rock n roll are also a heavy influence. In terms of design, typography and illustration it is a truly rich pasture. Here’s a collection of material I have gathered together to create something of a snapshot of Hot Rod heritage from classic decals, chop shop logos, posters, car lettering and more. Oh…and you’ll find a Duce Coupe vector to play with here if you want to get busy with some vintage rod inspired design ~ you’ll see something I knocked together with this halfway down this page…enjoi!
