In the 1950s and early 1960s Salt Lake City, Utah was a mecca for hot rods and custom cars. In the early 1960s Utah passed a law against altered suspension, and that pretty well killed the customs in Utah. Eventually Bo Huff and some other were successfull in getting the law changed to allow lowering again.[1]
