Street rodding is a popular form of hot rodding that involves customizing and modernizing vehicles that were originally manufactured before 1949. Many street rods have modified engines and transmissions as well as improvements to the interior for comfort and convenience. Popular models for street rodders to customize include vintage pickup trucks and classic coupes.
Street rods often feature custom paint jobs with bright colors and flashy patterns such as flames. Unlike hot rods, which typically are built with original parts, street rods are usually customized with new or modernized parts. Street rods are by definition street legal, whereas hot rods themselves are not always legal to drive. Street rods are also prohibited from racing by the National Street Rod Association which classifies them “as a safe, non-racing vehicle for total family enjoyment.”
