One of America’s favorite hobbies was born in Southern California in the 1930s. Prior to hot rods, performance vehicles were primarily confined to pricey luxury vehicles. Attempting to find a more price savvy route to speed and performance, Southern Californians with a passion for renovating cars began modifying Ford Model A and Ford Model T coupes and roadsters. While some stories attribute the name “hot rod” to the modified Ford V8s fueled by bootleg liquor during Prohibition, other stories claim Southern California car clubs invented the term. Gearheads stripped cars of extra weight, lowered suspension to improve handling, upgraded the engine and carburetion to amplify horsepower. Thanks to their limited budgets, the original hot rodders had to be inventive. During the 1950s and 1960s, hot rodding truly took off as NHRA’s national drag strip locations offered hot rods the opportunity to legally compete. Originally formed as a hobby shop, Acme Speed Shop quickly gained popularity, taking the automotive body shop from a garage into a fundamental part of the hot rod industry. Acme Speed Shop went on the road, traveling to different car shows throughout the country and celebrating the art and passion of hot rods through their products.
