Hot Rod Magazine was established just after World War II in 1948 and has been publishing a monthly magazine dedicated to automotive tinkering non-stop since then. That’s a hell of a feat.
The magazine has become ingrained into modern American pop culture and is easily the most iconic magazine dedicated to the dark arts of Hot Rod racing and engineering in the world.
Readership of the infamous magazine has been falling over the past few years, if you’d like to set things right, check out Hot Rod Magazine via Barnes & Noble here.
Articles that Ben has written have been covered on CNN, Popular Mechanics, Smithsonian Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, the official Pinterest blog, the official eBay Motors blog, BuzzFeed, Autoweek Magazine, Wired Magazine, Autoblog, Gear Patrol, Jalopnik, The Verge, and many more.
Silodrome was founded by Ben back in 2010, in the years since the site has grown to become a world leader in the alternative and vintage motoring sector, with well over a million monthly readers from around the world and many hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
