Default Veda Orr's "Lakes" Pictorial 1946



I picked up this great little reprint from the SCTA trailer at Bonneville one year, and just love it's authenticity and vintage feel. Veda's Pictorial for the 1946 season wasn't exactly a coffee table book- It's really more a hand-made booklet by the...

What amazes me is the number of spectators at the Lake. It was a BIG thing, and why has it faded?

More please and to typo41 - life was much simpler then, the "to-do" list was non-existent, and everyone had just been to hell and back. This was their entertainment, their "reality TV" if you will.

Yes, more, definitely! Thanks!

Veda's A-V8 roadster with the Ford Tri-motor seats is amazing! Any more photos or info on that car?

I replaced a windshield in Veda's A. cut the windshield up and saved the decal. My grandaughter dropped and broke it 15 years ago, but I can't bring myself to throw it away

I just looked at my original copy, it has Clymer Motors stamped in blue ink under Veda Orr's address on the inside page. The 1946 season on the cover has a "Featuring Hot Rods" lable pasted over it. I got this along with 10-12 issues of CT News along with boxes of late 1940's issues of Hot Rod magazine from the original owner. Old Ralph had a 1926 Rolls Royce and would stop by the shop back in the early 1980's and talk Rolls Royce. The stories were always the same, but I'd listen while I worked. One day out of the blue he showed up with a trunk load of Hot Rod history. I hever knew he had any interest in the stuff untill then. You just never know, be nice to everyone! Bob

Never get tired of this kind of history...(on another post, there is a picture of Karl Orr's old speed shop in Culver City, building is still there, appears to be a barber shop now)

Thanks for posting!

This is one book that I really need to get. I think Travis Tuki just picked up an original .....pretty awesome but for the price that they're going for, I think a reprint would be more my style just because I know my son will tearing into them in no time....whether he likes cars or not.

This kind of history, is what makes the HAMB, the best. I have an original copy of the later post-war edition, and you are right it has a more "polished" feel to it. I wish someone would make a movie about the life of Veda Orr. What a inspiring tale it would be, for the traditional hot rodders of today. definately the "1rst Lady of Hot Rodding".

If you ever do decide to throw it away, just send it to me. I have the same sticker on my Sport Coupe windshield from the '50's.

If you want the book (any book) for research a copy is the way to go if an original is costly. I have a file cabinet full of literature I use to reply to questions on many of the racing history threads here. I know some items have gone down hill a bit over the years. Bob

What is the current price for an original? A friend gave me one and because of that I will not sell it. Just curious. I think the book is copy right protected and reprints are available from http://velocepress.com/about/ . I did not see it listed but it is a Floyd Clymer publication and they own all the titles.
