This DVD contains a variety of films that explore the 50's hot rod phenomenon as well as Mobilgas "Safety and Economy" competition. The hot rod films are wrapped in stories about how youthful energy can be converted to something constructive and controlled by joining hot rod groups and expending their energies in a more constructive manner. These films contain excellent footage of 50's style hot rod competitions and meets - a must see for any serious hot rod buff. You will see a variety of classicly styled 50's hot rod cars, street rods and rat rods as well as vintage drag racing scenes.

As a bonus we are also including a film from the 1930's showing a classic Soap Box derby. While not really a hot rod film as there are no engines involved in these street rods, lots of folks who built these racers as children grew up to embrace the hot rod mentality in later years. As such, it makes an interesting backgroud piece to add to this fascinating collection.

Here are all the films that make up this two hour historical collection:

Ingenuity in Action (1958)
