Default Scrapbook



There's nothing at all new about creating a book out of old photo collections. In fact, I was introduced to traditional hot rodding through the "scrapbook" type publications that both Dean Batchelor and Don Montgomery put together in the early 1990s....

Required reading. A terrific book. Very nice companion to Jalopy Journal #2. Between the two, I've had many hours of enjoyable reading the past couple weeks. We must be in the Golden Age of hot rod book publication.

I really need that book! I look forward to seeing the chapter with my friend Ken Crawford's amazing drag strip colour photos from the 1950s.

My wife ordered this for me for Christmas last December. I got it on the same day that I got your Jalopy Journal book. Needless to say, your shipping was a little faster Ryan!

I knew this book would be good, but I'm even more impressed than I thought I would be. The pictures are absolutely outstanding, and the stories that go with them will provide much enjoyment for me. TRJ has hit this one out of the park.

Picked a copy up at Columbus this past weekend at the TRJ booth. I've been going through it every night since. It will wear your arms out holding it!
I was suprised how many of the guys still owned their cars or knew where they were. I know it would have taken away from the mood of the book, but I'd like to see pictures of how some of the cars look now.
I'd especially would like to know what happen to the chopped full fendered T coupe on the Custom City lot.
Regardless, excellent book and worth every penny.

One word of caution in opening the packaging on this baby- I cracked the tape seal open with the back of a key and didn't realize the book was directly below the tape- No extra protection or packing. I ended up putting a deep crease in the dust jacket...

Amazing book, and I am diggin' it so far as well. Ironically, I saw Steve Coonan last night, and complemented him on the Scrapbook and it's hefty number of pages. He said it was just too hard to cut stuff out, so he added 24 more pages beyond the max that was planned!

I feel very lucky that Steve (Geoff and Curt and everyone at TRJ) included pictures from my dad's scrapbook in this project. It turned out great!!!!

I got mine also! What a great book!! My wife also ordered mine back in November. Well worth the 8 month wait.

Did you guys who were supposed to get yours at Christmas get a numbered one? Mine is not one of the numbered ones.

Wow! Thanks for all of the great feedback about the Scrapbook. It is definitely a project that we are proud of, and we are so glad you all are enjoying it!

I just wanted to address a couple of things that I've noticed there may be questions about. First, the signed and numbered copies did sell out rather quickly and were officially sold out as of 11/14/11. Second, for those that did receive a signed and numbered copy, the signature and number are located on the first blank, left-hand page in silver ink.

If you have any questions about your Scrapbook order, or would like a copy for yourself, please feel free to give us a call. 800-750-9550 or 650-246-8920

Thanks again!

Chasity

Like Chasity already said, we really appreciate all of the positive feedback. And thanks, Ryan, for the cool review. We're glad to hear everyone likes what they see.

The contributors definitely deserve a nod on this thing, too, and there are at least a handful of them on the HAMB. John Gunsaulis (Jade Idol) already chimed in above. His Dad was responsible for some really bitchin' cars and equally cool photos. Dick Page, Tom Davison, and Ken Crawford are all also on the HAMB. All killer stuff...I really love this shot of Tony Nancy's roadster from Ken's chapter.

Thanks again for the kind words.
Curt
