Default Bert Bloomquist Images part 6: Last Call



I hope you've enjoyed Bert's Brownie series as much as I have. For me, its really exciting to see authentic, late 40s hot rod photographs that have never been widely published, and much like finding any undiscovered media from over 60 years ago, the ...

the guy in the plaid is still going to shows and walking in front of people who are trying to take pictures. I see him at every show I go to.

49ratfink ... I'm 99% sure the "guy in plaid" in the Bloomquist photo and the "guy in plaid" that always walks in front of you is HAMBer 32 Barn Car (aka Z.Diddy)

... sorry Bob, I couldn't resist

Thanks, Jive-Bomber for sharing these amazing photos.

I wonder if anyone in the L.A. area has access to the No-Name Club's archives of speedway racing from the '30s-40s? I saw the films (16mm) back in the '70s and only hope they haven't been lost to eternity.

Oh, man, this is some cool stuff... maybe I'm just having a chopped top kinda day, but that hammered Chev coupe in pic #4 and that deuce roadster in shot #1 (would sure like to have a closeup of the dash and steering on that puppy!) are getting me hot!

Can't thank you enough for sharing these photos.

that's possible... Mr B did not take a lot of time on composition in his pictures.

Maybe "the power of the HAMB" can identify and locate him so we can see his pic's too!

Thank you for the series of photos... I have enjoyed very much... every one of them!

It surprises me that postings like this do not stay on top of the board for weeks. These historic shots are such an important part of history! And besides that such a joy to look at!

I hope there will be many more postings like these...

Thank you!

Ric, I agree with you. I just returned from Santa Maria where there was a lot of original old customs and hot rods. Most have been re-done but a few are still wearing their original paint.

Seeing these old photos reminds me that this is where it all started. A lot of us forget about the origins of the whole thing today but seeing these photos it is clear that we are all just following in the footsteps of these guys when building our cars.
