In the ’60s, a car was important—not just any car—a white-walled kustom or a big-engined hot rod…imperative to nearly every red-blooded male, it allowed relative freedom. Weekends meant cruising the local “loop” or drive-in hangouts, street racing, or trying to meet every eligible female. In Midwestern towns, having a job and spending money on your car were of great importance. That four-wheeled gem was your whole world…a way to explore, to show off, and a means of meeting that perfect companion. A kustom or rod gave way to “factory hot rods,” off-the-showroom-floor 1960s big-engined sedans. Drag racing became the game, speed and fearlessness ran rampant…illegal drag races were standard fare. These stories will take you back to the 1960s…a time of civil unrest, constant change, and growing up…gradually…into a young adult, although most of us didn’t ever want these days to end.
