AllMusic Review by

This is certainly one of Rhino's more elaborate box set offerings, no mere four-disc set of car songs, not by a long shot. It comes housed in a Revel Authentic Kit-sized box that also holds a bound booklet designed to look like the cover of Hot Rod magazine, an accompanying Mooneyes mini-catalog, window adhesive hot rod stickers, a set of fuzzy dice, and a Mooneyes bottle opener/key ring, with each of the four discs housed in a custom hot rod color package of its own. The music not only covers the early hot rod hits of the '50s and early '60s, but plucks worthy contenders from modern rockers like the Stray Cats, Dave Edmunds, the Ramones, David Lindley, Canned Heat, the Doobie Brothers, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Rod Stewart, Pure Prairie League, and roots rockers like Denny Freeman, John Hiatt, Deke Dickerson, and Tex Rubinowitz. Hot Rods & Custom Classics is the kind of box set you want to leave out to show people all the goodies, with a pile of great music to go along with it under the hood. One of Rhino's best productions.
