For over 14 years, Brent Vandervort, owner of Fatman Fabrications, has written a technical column for the "Goodguy's Gazette," the monthly publication of the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association. His new book, "Building Hot Rods: 30 Years of Advice from Fatman Fabrication's Brent VanDervort," combines the best of those columns into one book. Hot rodding has changed from being primarily populated by the mechanics and hands-on workers of years ago. Today, many Rodders have the enthusiasm, but lack practical experience for the problem solving that makes building a hot rod such an enjoyable adventure. Vandervort's columns, respected and well read all these years, are designed to answer the questions of those car builders and customizers. An engineering degree and 30 years of experience designing and building some of the most innovative hot rod chassis components in the world give Vandervort a unique perspective on the technical side of hot rodding. With 144 pages, over 50,000 words and 200 photos and illustrations, "Building Hot Rods: 30 Years of Advice from Fatman Fabrication's Brent VanDervort" gives both new, and experienced hot rodders and car builders the information they need. Whether it's help installing a front frame clip in an old Ford, or solving a problem with an aftermarket fuel injection system installed in a early Mustang, the answers that current car builders need are all here.

From street rodders building traditional '32 Fords with straight axles and buggy springs, to hot rodders and street racers looking to update the stock suspension and brakes on a '55 Chevy or early Mustang, thousands of men and women work every day to build and update the chassis for their particular style of hot rod. This book answers the questions that hot rod builders have as they choose the best style of suspension for their particular vehicle and work to install a straight axle or complete front suspension kit. An established author of both books and columns, VanDervort owns Fat Man Fabrications, one of the world's leading suppliers of suspension components and kits to street rodders, hot rodders, racers, and restoration experts. To help choose the best suspension components and install them correctly, a good chassis book needs theory and how-to information. This book provides both: information that explains the pros and cons of an independent suspension versus a straight axle, as well as detailed step-by-step sequences that show how best to install those new components.

Millions of Chevrolet vehicles were built and sold in the 1960s and 1970s, and the great majority of those were rear-wheel-drive models with differentials known as 10-bolts or 12-bolts. High-performance limited-slip versions of these differentials also have been installed in Camaros, Chevelles, Corvettes, and many other GM muscle cars from 1964 through the 1970s, as well as Chevy and GMC trucks. If you have owned a GM performance car from the 1960s or 1970s, you have owned one of these sturdy, reliable, and versatile differentials. Many of these differentials are now more than 50 years old and are due for an overhaul. In Chevy Differentials: How to Rebuild the 10- and 12-Bolt, author Jefferson Bryant walks you through the entire process of procuring, evaluating, and rebuilding the perfect differential for your GM application. In this step-by-step guide, you learn how to completely disassemble the differential, evaluate components, and select replacement parts. You're also shown all of the up-to-date techniques for re-assembling the differential and axle. Informative sections on axle identification and replacement parts are also provided. Maybe you have found a salvage-yard unit and want to rebuild it to upgrade your existing vehicle. Maybe you would like to install an aftermarket 12-bolt assembly for extreme performance or racing. This is the only book dedicated solely to rebuilding, setting up, and modifying these axle assemblies for long service life and maximum performance. If you’re going to rebuild a Chevy 10- or 12-bolt axle, this book delivers the essential information to get the job done right.
