The Auto Race: Is it the First Hot Rod Movie?

The Auto Race: Is it the First Hot Rod Movie?

There are plenty of old 8mm clips with cool cars out there, but every now and then you find some real treasures like this circa 1920s silent movie clip. Atlas Films presents ‘The Auto Race’, which on the surface is your typical slapstick short of the era, but this one features period racers, a very strange clown car of sorts, and a few jalopy speedsters that I would classify as prewar hot rods.

Wait till the end to see what happens to them!
