Tom McMullen: Hot Rod & Street Rod Hero

Tom McMullen must always be remembered for his immense contributions to hot rodding and automotive publishing that still resonate just as LOUDLY today as ever! Tom put together one of the most recognizable hot rods with his flamed black '32 Roadster and birthed the whole Street Rod phenomenon in 1972 when he published the first issue of Street Rodder Magazine. Tom stayed deeply involved until his untimely death in a private plane crash. A hero of mine for the last 35 years, and will continue to by for the rest of my life! Thanks Tom!
