The term hot rod has been applied to such a broad selection of cars that hot rodding seems more a state of mind than a specific discipline. Nonetheless, for several generations, a fenderless 1932 Ford Flathead Highboy roadster has exemplified the breed. The Deuce roadster has such a broad appael that at least two have been made with Ferrari engines, one with a 250 GT and one with a 365 GTC/4.

Ferraris at the Sports Car tracks of Central USA - part four of six

Until 1959, Enzo Ferrari sold customers copies of his latest sports racing cars. Most of the closed Ferraris, however, were strictly road going so few were raced in the USA. But beginning in 1956, Ferrari began building serious GT race cars, and by 1958, the GT berlinettas began to be raced in the USA. For these reasons, most of the early racing Ferraris we have seen were open roadsters, with the GT berlinettas coming later, but occasionally, all through this period, Ferrari owners also raced their street berlinettas or coupes.
