Mystery ’37

Mystery ’37

The above photograph came to me by email a number of years ago. It was part of a large batch of photographs that I got along with the Bob Roddick Collection. Since that time, I’ve pondered the 1937 Ford. From this single photo, it’s pretty easy to assume that this […]

The Hemi Under Glass & More

I was tooling around The Selvedge Yard the other day and ran into a great post about the Hemi Under Glass. There’s some great vintage photography in the post, but what really caught my eye was the video featured below. It showcases a modern day interview with Bob Riggle and […]

The Raybestos RPU

I typically stay away from commercial posts here on The Jalopy Journal. This site started with a personal lean and despite what some of my detractors might say or think, I continue to work hard to keep it on a personal level. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve […]

The Lou Baney Tapes

The Lou Baney Tapes

People send me vintage footage all of the time. Ripping this footage and uploading it to our servers takes a big time commitment, so I stack the footage I get and put sticky notes on each one that includes the source and information about the clip. When I find some […]

The Bocar Stiletto by Bob Carnes

The Bocar Stiletto by Bob Carnes

As a follow up to his successful XP series sports cars , Denver Colorado-based car builder Bob Carnes decided to take his same XP-6  front-mounted 471 blown SBC engine backed by a Borg-Warner T-10 transmission, and apply it to a purely evil race car for 1960 season. It was to […]

2010 H.A.M.B. Drags – August 21

It’s that time of the year again… The time when I get nervous as hell. The Drags are just around the corner. Of course, we made a lot of changes this year. For one, the event is “pre-reg only.” So as of right now, we have a full field of […]
