Default HAMB Exclusive: 8mm Hot Rod Footage (1964)



A buddy of mine at work collects old 8mm films, and came across an unlabeled reel with this soundless color footage, just as you see it here. I just posted it to YouTube for the first time a few days ago, and I figured Jalopy Journal folks would appr...

That's as close to a time machine as we get. Thanks for posting.

I'm thinking it's 1963 though, as that's the newest cars I see in all of the racing footage, and all of the "new" Chevy's at the dealership are '63s.

Cool!!

I'll watch it again to see if you're right. However, all of the "new" cars at the lot are 1963's. Also, new model year cars come out before the actual calendar year. So, I'm still thinking it's 1963 even if there was 1 1964 car in it.

The town resembles Colusa, California, about an hour north of Sacramento, but it could also easily be one of many small towns in the Sacramento or Central Valleys.

Bad Ass. Was life simpler back in the earlier 60s? I don’t know, People had to work, stay healthy, teach your children. Same as today. I was a kid then. Only thing, I wish my kids could have grown up then. Just drop me off in that Chevy dealer. Priceless. Slim

Yowza! He needs to get that up on one of the stock photo sites and make some money. I'd love to see bits of that on the next History Channel car-related special.

The "Chevy Dealership" is also a OK USED CAR LOT. (sold used Chevy's) Blue and yellow sign with a circle at the top. Rare signs. Thats why there is all those early model Chevy's sitting on the lot too. Might be HIS lot, or where he worked.
VERY neat film! We push fuel cars today at around 30 MPH, I think them boys were rollin a bit better than that!!

Thanks a ton for sharing!
