Originally this site (simply called: Mike's Hot Rod Pic of the Week!) contained on page with a new hot rod pic every week and no archive. This started in mid-January 1996 and was originally hosted on a server at Walla Walla College where I was a student at the time. Then due to due to the re-structuring of the school's web server and network I moved the site to GeoCities (which has since merged with Yahoo!). However due to changes because of the merger and my lack of satisfaction, I again moved the site to TerraShare, which unfortuantly went down (but appears to now be operating again). This forced me to move my site yet again, this time to Finally, in February 2003 I registered my own domain name and am now being hosted by Netaves. Of course through out all the moves my site kept growing from the single page it was to the extensive site it is now. Along the way I coined the phrase “Hot Rods to Go!” (around late '97 or early '98), but as I waited too long to register the domain name someone else took it. At this point I've taken to calling my site “Streetrods to Go!”, however the entry page still bears the original “Mike's Hot Rod Pic of the Week!”.
