Surfin' & hot rods
« on: December 05, 2012, 09:11:22 PM »
Hot rods played a big part in some of the 60's beach movies, notably Bikini Beach which had several famous cars featured.   I don't know what came first in the surfing lifestyle, the movies or the hot rods themselves.  The surfing lifestyle is also one which I can relate to the best, having spent lots of time on the beach & scuba diving.

Woodies & wagons were the vehicle of choice, giving lots of room for the longboards.  Nearly every woodie meet features a slew of woodies with boards on top, regardless of the woodie owner ever being a surfer !

I was born and raised in Redondo Beach, CA when both surfing and hot rodding we're very big.  I always thought the two terms we're mutually exclusive in that it was very hard to be good at both surfing and hot rodding at the same time.  I just didn't have time for both - if I was at the beach I couldn't be working on my car.  At the time you we're either a Hodad (non-surfer car guy) or a surfer.  So really, I leaned toward being a hodad.
