Default Now In Color!



There's just something about color photography of the late 1950's to the mid 1960's or so... It's saturated and soft, but still really rich. I've always had a thing for that look and have started to gather quite a collection. Rather than bore you wit...

Both I think, but mainly Hot Rod Magazine... They are all just photos I've saved through the years.

These pix are part of the reason I'm in love with that era of hotrods and customs. I will have one of both someday

Ive always loved the early photos..
they seem more like art, than pictures taken with a camera..
as if they were meticulously sketched, than painted with soft colors..hard to explain, but very pleasing to the eye..
crisp!

nice post Ryan thanks

thank you for these views

a common theme with this group is great/ wild customizing ..with almost all of em having stock wheels , caps or just chromed units..

most must have been taken before the "customized wheel industry "made them affordable

WOW! That's a trip back in time for me.

I had EVERY one of those HRM pics on my dorm wall in college (early 60's).

There was a particular fondness for the gal in the cowgirl getup with the 409 powered roadster p/u. Think they were from Texas.

Thanks for stirring the slumbering brain cells; I'll have to dig those out of storage.

Thanks for the memories. I was a Hotrod subscriber from59 all through the 60s. I don't remember every one of these pictures but damn near it. Color pictures inside of car magazines was a BIG deal when it started. Before that the feature cars inside were printed in green ink.

That chopped F100 with the canted headlights and the fenders tucked in was always a favorite of mine along with the candy root beer 28-29 roadster P/U.

I miss the soft, analog look of real pics like that. Thats what life looks like.

Great collection of photos Ryan and thanks for sharing them! My dad(RIP) was huge into photography starting back in the late 50's and did a lot of color photography so it's kind of a walk down memory lane for me. Very cool stuff.

Ryan, these pictures generate a flood of pleasant memories as this WAS my era. Thanks for the memories, and since I finally got to met you at the Round UP, I promise your secret is safe with me.

I Love those images!! I alway look to these images for inspiration on my T. The color represents the time very well...not that I was living during the time but you get my drift.

Ryan, Thanks for sharing. I cant help but notice in most all of the pics, that the people are happy, friendly looking folks. They dont have have that "im late", I wonder if I 'll get cell service here look. Its kinda cool to think that our cars allow us to have a lifestyle that is slower, more relaxed and more friendly(at times).
