Hey guys, as a young dude who missed all the fun back in the day I've always wondered about the pop culture/Hollywood portrayal of greaser gangs in the 50s running neck and neck with the mob and other seedy elements. It's such a common trope in media that I'm curious how many hot rod gangs there really were going about sticking folks with switchblades and whatnot, and how much of that is just the result of media frenzy about kids styling themselves as toughs and having a dangerous hobby. All I've ever seen of hot rod flavored organized crime was in fiction, or apocryphal. Was it a thing? How big of a deal was it? What's the scoop?
