Rodding USA Magazine

RoddingUSA is a high quality monthly magazine printed on Gloss Art paper featuring hot rods and events from across America. It's a content rich magazine designed for readers who enjoy the core hot rod experience and is created for them by true hot rodders with a ton of experience and a passion for the hobby.

It features a range of cars from the mid-1920s through the early 1960s with an emphasis on traditional style hot rods. Editor, Paul Martinez says "Our master hot rod articles will run from 10-12 pages and will not only focus on the overall look of a car but the details which make it flow. Likewise for extended event coverage. Paul relates, "When you have 500 to 5,000 cars at an event you need to devote enough space to have the reader feel that they have experienced something special even if they were not able to attend. Our event coverage will range from 6-15 pages depending on the event."That's complemented by technical stories, a business spotlight, car collections, garage scenes, industry icons, readers' rods, a product showcase and more.

The Premier Issue (March), is just about ready to send to the printer.  It will be available in a hard copy edition and also on all major digital news stands on February 28, 2013.

Master Fabricator Phil Remington Passes

Motorsports Museum. Article courtesy Daniel Strohl.

If it had anything to do with going fast and came out of Southern California, Phil Remington not only likely had something to do with it; he also likely was instrumental in its success, which is why the hot rodding and performance worlds are mourning Remington's death on Friday at the age of 92.

Remington's fabrication skills almost seemed to come naturally, and he employed them to great effect early on, building hot rods to race on the California dry lakes in his teenage years before World War II. If it hadn't been for a motorcycle accident after the war, we may very well remember him today for his prowess at the wheel; instead, he quit racing after the accident and focused on developing his skills to the point where he could shape or create just about anything out of metal.

Those skills led him to work with - among many others - Emil Diedt and Lujie Lesovsky, building Indy cars; with Sterling Edwards, building Edwards's well-regarded sports cars; with Lance Reventlow in his effort to dominate sports car racing with the Scarab; with Carroll Shelby to develop the Cobra; with Ford to develop the GT-40; and for the last 40-plus years with Dan Gurney at All-American Racers.

Shelby called him one of the most indispensable people at Shelby American and "one of the finest craftsmen in the world" while Pete Weismann, who worked on the Ford GT-40 project with Remington, noted that the GT-40 "would have been an unbelievable failure" without him.

"He is a marvel, an old salt, and an inspiration to young and old," Gurney said of Remington on the occasion of his 90th birthday. "I know, it is a cliché, but when they made old Rem, they threw away the mold."

Goodguys Founder, Gary Meadors, Receives
Brizio Family "Driven" Award

award to Goodguys Founder & Chairman Gary Meadors (left). Grand National Roadster Show promoter John Buck looks on. Photo courtesy of Scott Killeen.


Goodguys Founder and Chairman Gary Meadors got a nice surprise at the 64th annual Grand National Roadster awards ceremony. The head Goodguy himself received the Brizio Family "Driven" Award which is presented annually to a pre-'49 street-driven rod. 


Meadors'  '48 Chrysler Town & Country was on display at the event in the Hot Rods & Hobbies booth - builders of the long, lean and low convertible. Fittingly, Meadors hopped in the car and drove it to Pomona, CA from his home in Cave Creek, Arizona then jumped back in and drove it back home Monday morning! 


Long a believer in driving hot rods instead of putting them on a trailer, the Meadors Town & Country convertible, which debuted last year, has already been driven over 10,000 road miles (with rock chips to prove it) including last fall's Rodfather/Goodguys Road Tour to Indianapolis and back.
Look for Meadors cruisin' the Town & Country on a highway near you! Congrats Gary!

    Watch a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Jump,  

Botch the Landing

 We all enjoy watching a car launch off a jump - just as long as it's not our car.

That may be true for most people, but a few brave individuals don't mind subjecting their own vehicles to the extreme punishment that often follows the landing. In these two videos, a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor gets some serious air, but pays the price afterward.

In the videos, two people attempt to jump a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor off a ramp, and are airborne for several seconds before finally landing nose-first in the dirt. Once the truck hits the ground, its airbags deploy and hazards begin to flash. The crowd of spectators cheers, then rushes to the scene to help pull out the truck's occupants. Based on the comments made by spectators in the video, the driver may have been carrying too much speed into the jump, which made him overshoot the landing. In the second video, which shows the impact from a closer vantage point, we get a better look at the damage.
Watch both videos. Source: YouTube

The Citrus Inn opened in 1913
in this very building on Folsom Boulevard. Citrus was sold in front of the building to everyone that passed by on busy Folsom Boulevard.

Folsom Boulevard was a main thoroughfare for the gold rush in the mid 1800s. Many immigrants and forty-niners were in search of some of the gold that James W Marshall and John Sutter found in the American River. The railroads that are still visible across the street today were the same railroads that were constructed in the late 1800s.

Rumor has it that over the years The Citrus Inn became many different businesses, including The Edwards Hotel, and at one point, a brothel. Everyone came to the building to eat good food and to have a good time. There was drinking and dancing 'til late at night.

Later, the building became known as Sheepherder Inn. It was a place for Basque sheepherders to come and rest upstairs in the Inn and enjoy a hearty meal downstairs, which probably consisted of meats, fish, lamb stews, legumes, cheeses and Basque cider.

In 1983 California Sprint Car racers were experiencing 'excessive sound' issues at numerous race tracks and were told to quiet the cars down or lose racing privileges. All attempts to silence the race engines without sacrificing power repeatedly failed.

Enter Flowmaster founder, Ray Flugger, with over 45+ years of exhaust design experience, and while working out of a small 800 square foot barn in Kenwood, California, created Flowmaster's first patented design of racing silencers. Ray attached handles to ease carrying the square shaped race mufflers through the race pits, and the mufflers became known as the "suitcase muffler." Today, these innovative Flowmaster mufflers are the result of years of development with top race engine builders, thousands of hours of dyno research and "real-world" on-track testing

Flowmaster's product line includes exhaust products for Performance Street, Muscle Cars, Trucks, Street Rods, RV's, Motorhomes, and all types of race applications. With over 400 different muffler models, 370+ exhaust systems and numerous exhaust accessories available, Flowmaster offers you the choice of sound to fit your preference from "wild to mild" and your specific vehicle needs.
