Rod Action - Magazine Covers - 1972 to 1975

Ray Brock worked for 20 years at Hot Rod and other magazines for Petersen Publishing Company.  After his service ended with the closure of Rod & Custom magazine in 1971, he started his own company and published Rod Action magazine.  The publishing company, Challenge Publications, was located in Canoga Park, California, and Tex Smith was the editor.  Rod Action was first printed in August, 1972 and ceased publication in 1998 after the company was sold.

This magazine, along with Street Rodder, really captured the energy and passion in the street rod movement. 

Note: magazine covers are only shown through 1975.
