Don “Rockerhead” Montgomery was a publisher and Southern California hot rodding icon. Montgomery got his start writing books when he realized the content that was being written about life as a hot rodder growing up in Southern California was either false or misinformed.
Montgomery decided to pull from his own experiences and start writing in automotive magazines. These magazines received so much acclaim from around the community that he decided to publish several books and became known as a drag racing guru. His first book Hot Rods in the Forties shed light on what the hot rodding scene in SoCal was actually like.
He will be missed.
