The Goodguys Rod %26 Custom Association returned to Scottsdale, Arizona, recently for its 11th FItech Spring Nationals exhibition at WestWorld. Car enthusiasts and car enthusiasts from all over the country gathered to enjoy the sunny weather and thousands of muscle cars, classics and customs on display.

Rich Wait began building cars in a small garage for his own use. Now, after 20 years doing business as the hot rod factory, Wait is a sought-after expert. Of course, current Hot Rod heroes who keep a flame on those past legends while making their way with innovative and expressive designs also deserve a wink. They work in a gray and white two-story building on a corner lot in an industrial section of south San Francisco that is easily overlooked, if not for the hot rods of customers parked out front.

From their store, they managed Racing News from the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) and, at a time when most hot rodders were fighting in World War II, veterans like Tom Medley credited Veda as the glue that held hot rodding together during the war years. Bailon is the passionate one who created the iconic Caramel Apple Red color, which had a metallic base layer, a transparent color layer and a final transparent layer. After the war he wrote Hot Rod Pictorial and Dry Lakes Pictorial, becoming the first person (male or female) to write a hot rod book. Brizio began working with his father, Andy Brizio, a legend among the post-war generation of vehicles, known for his “Instant-T DIY kits”, which turned Ford Model T into custom “T-Bucket” hot rods.

Some of the store's best-known projects include the construction of numerous Roadster Show winners, as well as the Hot Rod magazine's T roadster for the publication's 50th anniversary. Dean's Hot Rods have been finalists several times for the Goodguys Rod %26 Custom Association Hot Rod of the Year awards, and their vehicles have participated in several Goodguys Car Shows. Brizio says there's no difference between building a car for them and anyone else who can afford to spend several hundred thousand dollars on a van. There are many people who pushed the limits of creativity, ingenuity, art and engineering to create and compete in beautiful hot rods.

The Hot Rod factory will even search for the right car for customers and restore it to its unique potential. Recognized rods include a modified 1935 Ford pickup, a custom cut 1933 Ford Coupe and a custom-built 1951 Ford Mercury. Hollywood Hot Rods, the business he founded and runs, is already established among the big builders of modern rods. Originally racing a modified Ford roadster, I was looking for more speed, but I knew there were aerodynamic problems with the Squarish-Ford.
