20 YEARS AGO

Hot Rod - - Roddin’@random -

July 1998 (172 pages, $3.50): “Bad-Ass Beast­ies” is the sort of blurb that Gray Baskerville spon­ta­neously, end­lessly spouted dur­ing his decades of is­sue-plan­ning meet­ings. Gray’s cover story re­vived archived ex­am­ples of the fastest and/or wildest streetable drag cars pre­sented by HOT ROD since Tommy Ivo’s T-bucket in 1957. Jack Roush drives the Mustang II he built for Detroit street-racer Joe Rug­gierello. Phil Cool’s wind-blown fam­ily reap­pears in an out­take from our July 1978 cover shoot. We re­call the pri­vate war fought by the blown Ford coupes of pioneer nos­tal­gia rac­ers Fat Jack Robin­son and Jerry More­land in the 1980s. Young’uns Scott Sul­li­van and Rick Dob­bertin rep­re­sent Pro Street with dis­sim­i­lar su­per­charged Chevy IIs.
