Hot Cars and High Performance Stockers was published by Engeldrum Publishing, Bronx, NY. The editor and publisher was Phil Engeldrum, who had previously started Super Stockers and High Performance Stockers magazines. The focus was on both street performance and drag racing, with plenty of technical coverage for those who wanted performance.
Mr. Engeldrum took a distinct approach to the magazine numbering scheme. He might include the typical volume and serial number, but more significantly Engeldrum used a sequential numbering scheme that was interpersed across four titles - Hot Cars, High Performance Stockers, Super Street Cars and Chevy Power. For example, issue number 45 would be Super Street Cars, number 46 would be Chevy Power, and number 47 would then be Hot Cars.
