“Hot Rod” Show – The Lost Kodachromes

“Hot Rod” Show – The Lost Kodachromes

I’ve been saving this one for a while and figured Jay’s post from yesterday was the perfect lead-in. My buddy, Spooky, was at a garage sale in Colorado and stumbled upon a box of Kodachrome transparencies. The box contained no information sheets, but was marked with a blue ball point pen – “HOT ROD SHOW.” Inside, each slide was stamped with a date – “Oct. 62.” Those markings along with the images themselves are the only clues we have as to where and when these photos were taken.

Obviously, this was a large and probably nationally promoted car show. Enlisted cars include the Outlaw, the Beatnik Bandit, the Matador, Winfield’s truck, and a few others you will recognize. There are also some other cars photographed that I’ve never seen before and assume to be local to the show’s area. These might be our best clue as to where this all went down.

In any case, I present to you The Lost Kodachromes. If any of you have any idea where and when these photographs were taken, I would absolutely love to hear from you.
