The faces in this book belong to cool people who know something that the unwashed don’t know. The traditional, early style hot rod and custom attracts cool people, folks who will cluster, form packs and in some cases clubs, but not associations. Theirs is a closed society, not because of exclusionary rules, but because so few on the periphery have the unique collective exponents in art, mechanics and culture. Ehrling has pictured these hot rod/customs people in Sweden, USA and Germany from 2004 until 2010.
