It appears to be the opening to the “Hot Rod Story” produced by Alex Xydias, but my DVD has a much different sequence. So, who knows?

What great footage. Thanks for sharing that clip.
CT was a crankshaft company (I always heard the CT stood for Clem Teboe, the owner). Maybe one of you left coast guys can verify that. Obviously, strokers was for stroked cranks. Mike

I was thinking the same thing. I like how the very end morphs into the line drawing. Gotta did the DVD out and watch it again, if for no other reason than, "Just because."

also, according to so-cal's website, the reissue (dvd) has been altered (lengthened) from the original, so there is chance they just reworked the title sequence.

Always like to see the in car footage from back in the day. For some reason it just seems like it is real kinda like Home Movies lol. Not edited like the stuff of today. And that music makes me think of the old Sid Caeser show-Hah Hah>>>>.
