At Hot Rods & Custom Stuff, we believe in the truths presented in the prose presented here. We build roadsters to drive. The fact that they look good doing it is also one of our requisites. We’ve got lots of examples of that, and we’ll be presenting them here. Today, to help illustrate the validity of some of the feeling expressed above, we’ve collected a few pictures from Chick Koszis’ roadster ramblings across the western United States.


We hope that you enjoy them. When you can’t resist the urge any more, and you’re ready to start that roadster project of your own, come see us. Randy Clark, our resident roadster maestro, will be happy to discuss your project with you. We’ve built world-class roadsters here at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff and they’ve proven themselves on the road.
