Southern California's dry lake beds have attracted racers since the turn of the 20th century, but things really exploded in the Thirties. More than 70 years later, hot rodders are still fascinated by this period and this place. Luckily, a lot of the racers are still going strong. Leslie Long was at Muroc, Harper, Rosamond, and El Mirage back then and for the past several years has been collecting photos and information from those days, and is dedicated to seeing this history kept alive and told right. The amount of info Leslie has in his memory and on paper is staggering, and his photo collection, contributed by dozens of racers, is equally amazing.

There's a whole world of hot rodders out there who use their vehicles on a regular basis but never drive them on the street or at the track. They're vintage boat enthusiasts. You might not think of them as hot rodders, but hang around these guys for a weekend and see their enthusiasm for traditional craftsmanship, their love for performance, and their preference for cruising around in something old instead of something new, and you might start thinking of them as hot rodders after all. Vintage boats are the fastest growing portion of the American Power Boat Association and, just like vintage drag racers, vintage boat racers haven't let rule changes and eliminated classes keep them from enjoying their restored old-time racers. Lawrence River, is one of many vintage powerboat events where antique boat enthusiasts can get their kicks.
