Actually, we tend to think of Hot Rods as not being "Customs", but if you actually think about it.........they actually are "Kustoms". When done many of them only vaguely resemble their original configuretion. The bodies get chopped,channeled. They get louvered and pinstriped. They get lowered and raised. They get custom interiors and paint jobs. They get chromed and polished. They get virtually everything done to them that a Kustom gets done. Its just that the "style" they want to attain has a somewhat different look from what most people want to call a Kustom.Even traditional Hot Rods have the fenders removed,the tops chopped,and lots of chrome sometimes. Low Rider ????? Kustom bodywork,low profile,flames........ Why ain't these Kustoms?
