Street Rod & Custom Showtime takes a succinct view of the birth and development of the American show circuit, and then a concentrated look at the evolution of the indoor custom shows in Britain: from their humble beginnings in the early '60s, through the explosive growth of the '70s, into the victorious '80s when UK customs appeared at the USA Grande Finale in Las Vegas, culminating in an Englishman's victory at Oakland, the world's greatest custom show. Those first twenty years to 1982: with over 110 indoor hot rod and custom car and bike shows, where craftsmanship and inherent talent stepped to the fore, where individual creativity was king.

Street Rod & Custom Showtime is not the work of one man but includes the anecdotes, memories and photographs of nearly one hundred of those who were there - as exhibitors, as organisers, as visitors, as journalists - all of whom, by their enthusiasm, contributed to make it what it was - a chrome plated, candy coloured extravaganza of creativity.
