Default SCTA Clubs... 1948



It was September 19, 1948 and the SCTA was taking steps to improve the reputation of their membership. On this day, they gathered just over 300 members from 36 clubs at the Lincoln-Mercury plant in Maywood, California. While their race cars and stree...

It seems I've seen a "head-on" shot from that day. I may be confused with the one like that they took on the salt, but I recall seeing pavement. It'll take me forever to find it, I'm sure.

I wonder what it is that has the attention of the little boy by the Dolphins belly tank and the guy perched on the Oakland Roadster Club car.

Good stuff, though.

Always loved the pic. That roadster looks like something Eddie Dye would have built.........or ZACH SUHR.

Never been perched on top of a latter...been on a ladder a time or two.

Love that I can really see painted cars, not a bunch of primer rides. The duvall windshield and the chin look great on the Stroker's car. Right along with the louvers.

Whats the "old dude" doing in the back? Looks frustrated!!

Maybe the old dude realized instead of purchasing the "New" Dodge, he could have had something that really cooks!!

the speed graphic...your view is through the back: which makes the image upside down and backwards.

One of my fav pics for sure. I too have always wondered about that 28/29 roadster. Love the hood, trunk and "nose" on it. I've also been trying to locate any info on the killer little 26/27 with the shiny cowl lid. Both cars looks killer!

That is a great photo ... and rumor has it that the photographer was actually not perched on a ladder ... but rather on the shoulder's of a hot rodder from Bell/Maywood California ... a 16 year old kid named Ed Roth ... and we all know that later in life, "Big Daddy" became a Mormon (aka Latter Day Saint) ... so quit busting Ryan's chops about his "spelling".

The roadster might be the one own by a man of the last name Courtney. He was the uncle of a friend of mine John Courtney. I believe that is a Hallock (sp) windsheld and his uncle's car had that style of windshield. John's uncle's car was pictured in a group shot in the first issue of Hot Rod I believe. I will try to dig that issue out and see it appears to be the same car.

What a great shot in time!

Notice, also, the "Gaters" club sign. Gaters is a member here -- seems like he has his dad's (or grandpa's) old Banger-powered roadster?

....and I found a thread where 'Gaters' is looking for some history on the car club!

Pretty cool pic, hadn't seen that one before. Isn't 1948 a bit early for good color like that, or was it doctored up some?

Color film is around as early as WW1. By post WW2, it is available.
