Hot Rod Headlines has done the legwork and you can take a vitrual shop tour of about 100 of the best hot rod builders in the US

It has photo galleries of Winfield, Alloway, Foose, Trepanier, Starbird, Rolling Bones, Alan Johnson, Coddington, and 90 more I'm not familiar with, but have work of such good quality that you might want to learn about the ones in your area.

Thanks Brian for getting me to look this up!
