LOL no. I'd rather ask guys who were there than play revisionist history. I mean Im sure guys had tall T's with fenders and steelies, but it wasn't common.

I usually ask stuff like this because it leads to story telling and I also find the way "hotrod fashion" changed geographically to be fascinating. For example, you didn't see many severely raked out choppers here in the 60s and 70s because our streets are narrow and filled with potholes; but out west? Different story. According to my Dad and his buddies, there are more cars on cragar s/s rims now in our town than there ever was when they were kids, too damn expensive for a bunch of poor farmers. I think my Dad spent a weeks pay on a Hurst shifter in 1969

The hockey stripe could be a regional thing, after all we are the home of the Hockey Hall of Fame... Hockey Heads look at life differently...

I think the problem was that whenever I read or heard the term... we were looking at an open-wheeled car. I kind of related the fenderless look to the term.

A word of warning for you though...

In these times, when an Isuzu with a low restriction air cleaner is considered by many to be a "hot rod"... you are beating a dead horse over this term! (To me a hot rod was a performance modified pre-war body... like my magazines taught me in the '50s and sixties!)

Today's youngsters are making a very strong effort to change all of our terminology and teach us how things were when we were young. I am afraid that the people who invented rods and customs will not recognize the hobby fifty years from now. {:-(

Oh well... Gotta go back to work on this '40 pickup street rod I'm doing. :-)~

...and don't anybody try tell me it's not a "street rod". }:-)
I agree with you Jester a big Radio ,a 6 in exaust extension and Kia or Haundai draggin the ground does Not make a Hot Rod.

Never heard of a hokey stripe ,,tell me iy was only a senior moment .LOL
