Street Rods are an awesome type of classic American car. The term “Street Rods” refers to older models from American automakers that have been modified (or modded) so that they have larger engines. The larger engines makes the car have faster driving speed. In addition to a larger, more powerful engine, these street rods included changes in the body, windshield and hood to make it move faster. Examples of Street Rods include old Ford model-Ts or model As.
The word “street rod” is mostly interchangeable with “hot rod”, however there is one major difference. The main difference between hot rods and street rods is that street rods are not cars that are involved in racing. They are just for the street, mostly for showing off. The popularity of these cars originally took off after World War II. Street rods found a resurgence in popularity after the 1960s, and are still popular.
