A custom car is a passenger vehicle that has been substantially modified in either of the following two ways:
- A custom car may be altered to improve its performance, often by altering or replacing the engine and transmission
- A custom car may be a personal “styling” statement, making the car look unlike any car as delivered from the factory.
Additionally, a street rod can be considered a custom.
Although the two are related, custom cars are distinct from hot rods. The extent of this difference has been the subject of debate among customizers and rodders for decades.
