Remind me why the history of Hot Rodding is so important? I mean to me Hot Rodding is in my garage when I work on my car not in some book. Is Hot Rodding really that important in the history of civilization as to require a formal history? I may come across as a total ass but I am sincere in my question and pose it not to make a shocking statement just for a reaction but an actual search for an answer. And I picked the word remind on purpose it wasn't just some nice sounding word. This answer may already be in me but I honestly may just need a reminder. This would be a great opportunity to teach not to sound good by making me sound bad.
