The terms Hot Rods and Street Rods can refer to cars of any of these eras (although there are certainly favorites among rodders), and the terms are often interchanged and confused. Both tend to refer to vehicles which have been kept at or close to factory specs, with original engines, interiors and body. Some define Hot Rod as a beefed up vehicle built for high performance and probably sees at least occasional street or strip racing, whereas a Street Rod is a somewhat beefed up ride which is still very street legal and probably more favored for long pleasure rides, rod runs and cruises. While Hot Rods and Street Rods tend to use original drivetrains (or swap for small blocks or big blocks of the time if the original motor is tired), performance manifolds, tunnel rams, blowers, superchargers, cams, lifters, rods, breathers, fuel lines, suspensions, brakes, intake and exhaust systems are often added and/or upgraded to increase power and performance. Custom vehicles have been quite altered from original factory specs, often exchanging original engines for later model power, modernized interiors that look little like the originals, and restyled bodies and trim.
Motorheads Performance has become known as nostalgia and traditionalist builders with "a pinch of high tech", preferring to keep stock vehicles as close to original as possible while giving customers the comforts and conveniences which will enhance their driving experience and allow them to get out and hit the roads in style!
