Bangshift.com, Review May 4, 2009
"Some books you buy for the words and some you buy for the pictures. Hot Rod Garages by Peter Vincent has words, but the incredible photography tells the stories that the book is trying to tell. This is an awesome look into the workshops of some of the most talented car builders, fabricators, and hot rod shops in the country.There is an honestly and feel to the photography in this book that is unique, in my experience, to the genre. Normally the photos are just too posed, too unnatural, and give the vibe that the guy shooting them was totally interrupting the work of the guys in the shop. This book’s pictures have a comfortable fly on the wall appeal that gives the reader the impression that they are an old friend, or at minimum a welcome guest.There are big name builders, like Roy Brizio, and Pete Eastwood, as well as guys like the late Pat Foster (who did amazing work restoring or recreating old drag cars) shown along with several builders whose names rang a bell, but aren’t household names like the other guys.Each chapter has an introduction about the person about to be featured. By the final chapter we found it more fun to use the photography as an initial guide, form an opinion on who we thought the builder was through there work, and then read the intro back to see how our perception met up. These guys all build world class cars. This is the ream team of car building, especially for high end type hot rods. If you love great photography and learning about the guys behind the cars you see winning all the major shows, you need this book as it provides a rare personal glance into the places that these fellows are most comfortable, their shops. The shops are a great testament to the balance between raw skill and machinery. These are not bling filled caverns. Instead they are to these guys what a nice little studio is to an artist, a place to make their magic and see their vision come to fruition."


Jalopnik.com, Review April 26, 2009
"For those of you who like to get your 90-weight-coated paws on some car-themed reading material, we're continuing with this book-review thing. Today we're checking out a weighty slab of a coffee-table book. Hot Rod Garages poses something of a dilemma for the intended audience, because it really ought to live in the garage, where you can thumb through it while digging deep for motivation to work on that rusty '61 DKW Munga Hell Project… but you'd feel a twinge of guilt the first time you dropped a torque converter on its snazzy three-dimensional cover (the windows in the cover's garage illustration are actual holes cut through the cover, an effect that doesn't show up so well in photographs but is pretty cool in person). The concept behind the book is quite simple: Vincent visited the garages and workshops of 18 builders of vehicles that fall within the hot rod and/or custom tradition and documented what he found. Some are big names and some aren't; all create some pretty serious machinery, and their shops range from primitive to palatial. I cracked open this book hoping to see hundreds of obsessive closeups of battered tools and weird engine parts on scarred workbenches, which wasn't what I found; most of the photographs show entire cars, many of which aren't parked in the garages in which they were created. That's not really a problem, however, because plenty of the non-garage photos were shot on the Bonneville salt flats and just about all the cars are serious gearhead pr0n.You get a generous helping of text for a coffee-table book, including interviews of car builders and the author's reminisces of his experiences with them. Best of all is the fascinating history of the Moal family's operations in East Oakland, written by Michael Dobrin, and the extensively documented buildup- practically a how-to guide- of the Rolling Bones' George Poteet '34 coupe.The verdict: a Three Rod Jalopnik book rating. An enjoyable book for the average car geek, a big improvement over the tedious stuff that sits on most coffee tables… and pure un-stepped-on crack for those hooked on the traditional hot rod aesthetic. Murilee says check it out!"

Synopsis

Acclaimed hot rod photographer Peter Vincent takes readers into the shops and garages of more than two dozen rod and custom builders across the USA, showing how these work spaces inform and reflect each custom creation, whether of individuals crafting the cars of their dreams or prominent shops turning out cool rides for top dollar. The book offers an intimate look into the garages of legends like Pete Eastwood, and the Rolling Bones club, Vern Tardel, the Kennedy Brothers, Roy Brizio, Cole Foster, and top of the line shops like Brizio Street rods, and Steve Moal's operation, and is replete with stunning images, text on the cars and work n progress, and commentary by the custom-builders themselves.

Hier gibt's nicht viel zu sagen: sehr gut gemacht und eben nicht nur perfekte, glizzy Garages gezeigt, sondern z.T. die Linie zurück zu den Originalen der frühen Jahre gefunden. Text und größtenteils auch das Bildmaterial sind empfehlenswert!

HASH(0x94ac3630) von 5 Sternen Where are the Garages?! 6. Dezember 2009
Von Seattle Brat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was extremely disappointed with this book. You would think a book called "Hot Rod Garages" would have lots of photos of ... uh hot rod garages, right? Well, not this one. It's mostly dull interviews with guys who run pro shops. Most of the photos are detailed close-ups (and not particularly good ones either) of cars (again, not garages). Where are the garages?! I was expecting photos of regular folks with their unique set-ups, not a bunch of sterile pro shop layouts. There are a couple "real" garages here, but not enough to make this book worth purchasing. No vintage photos either. The only good thing about this book is the cover (which is actually a shot of a hot rod garage). This is the worst Motorbooks publication I've ever seen (and I love most of their output). Great concept for a book, but it sure as hell wasn't followed here.

HASH(0x94ac3780) von 5 Sternen The Shops of the Men who Build Hot Rods 15. September 2010
Von Jeffrey Morseburg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Peter Vincent is a prominent photographer and writer whose specialty is American hot rods. In Hot Rod Garages, he profiles a number of men who build hot rods, both prominent, award-winning constructors like Steve Moal and Roy Brizio, who work out of large, professional shops, as well as men like Pete Eastwood and Cole Foster who create their custom cars in backyard garages.

Hot Rod Garages is an attractive, small coffee-table book with short profiles of eighteen men who build hot rods. There are a number of photographs of the shops the builders work in as well as some examples of their finished products. A number of these talented body, paint and chassis men have Bonneville connections and have built cars that have competed for records on the Utah salt flats, which are known to the initiated as "the big, white dyno." These men thus build cars that are not simply intended for Sunday afternoon cruising, but vehicles that must be constructed in order to perform safely at 200 miles an hour.

The profiles are brief and not terribly introspective as the author's aim is to summarize the builder's career, to describe how their shop spaces came into being and what types of rods they create. Because the author comes from Idaho, a number of the hot rod craftsmen profiled come from the Northwest, far from the sport of hot rodding's Southern California origins. This is a welcome aspect to the book, because many of the car magazines tend to be Los Angeles-centric. There are some veteran Los Angeles rod builders covered here, as well as a few from the San Francisco Bay area.

The entry on Steve Moal, an exceptional craftsman from Oakland who grew up in the coachwork business, was guest-written by Michael Dobrin, and it is the most thorough and best-written chapter in the book. I would have preferred that fewer men were profiled and that all of the entries were of this length. Some of the constructors like Moal clearly deserve a book of their own. There is also a nice chapter on the Rolling Bones shop in New York, which includes a series of images of the construction of an all-metal '34 Ford "Three Window." This is an excellent photo essay, as it shows how a hot rod is constructed in the "old school" way.

Another suggestion that I would have for a future volume, if Vincent plans one, would be more of the builder's views on shop set-up and equipment, as based on the title, this book is devoted not to the finished hot rods but to the spaces in which they are created. Also, with the "rat rod" movement, there are a lot of younger men getting into rod building and they too deserve coverage. Despite the uneasiness some conservative, middle-aged car enthusiasts have with the tattoo culture that accompanies the Rat Rod movement, in an age in which industrial arts has all but been abandoned, where the idea of masculinity is under assault and where fewer American-born men can build anything at all, we need to encourage men who have constructive hobbies, especially ones that can turn into careers.

To summarize, this is a welcome book, for it is important to see not only beautifully chromed and painted completed hot rods, but the men who construct them and where they are created. It's nice to see a focus on smaller builders working out of spaces many readers can afford rather than just the lavish dream-shops of men like Troy Trepanier or Boyd Coddington, who produce the complex, sophisticated rods that are most often seen in magazines and on television.
HASH(0x94ac3abc) von 5 Sternen Dust to diamonds. 30. April 2011
Von deucesedan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
A great book on the people we all admire in the sport of hot rodding. From dusty floors to hospital clean they are all in here. From diamonds in the ruff to the slickest rods you have ever seen, they are all here. Just wish I had been smarter in days gone by to save some of the stuff I knew about. These guys did it. You will not be able to put it down. The second time you read it is even better.

Great source of ideas and photograph second to none. My only issue is the way the book is bound. After multiple throne readings, it tends to fall apart. Now I have two. One for show. Maybe it could be bound in the USA?
