I'm kind of lukewarm on the outside looks of the Holiday House, but the inside...damn!
It's reminiscent of a 1930-40s boat cabin.
Man that thing is looking so good! That's gotta be a blast to cruise around in.
Sorry if I missed it, but have you had any further thoughts on...
Love the car! And the story line is okay, despite several technicalities.
But who the heck would stay standing in the middle of the road when...
That thing is seriously cool.
Is the one in your lead picture an earlier year model (free standing headlight)?
It's quite a dance to race the tether cars (2nd video)!
It must've been a site if those guys got their lines crossed.
Instead of “Kookie lend me your comb”, how about Kookie lend me your car![emoji846]
He definitely had some great vehicles, but more important than that he looked to be a man of great character and integrity. I would've liked to...
Every time I read about the start of Corvette I'm blown away that:
1. It ever happened in the first place.
2. That they've been continually...
@typo41 Isn't that the gospel truth!
Here's a couple color shots of several of the cars and check out the gas pumps in the background.
Man that looks great.
But I will say as have a few others, don't paint the wheels!
YES! If this guy isn't a HAMBER, he ought to be! :D
I agree with @wvenfield you'd think they'd be thankful to know they need to address the problem.
I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I couldn't...
That station has always been a stop anytime I'm up that way.
The first time for me was on my way home to Washington sometime in the late '90s. We...
@Huntimerphotography I agree with that. :)
What I'm speaking to is when they don't bother to blow off any of the dust or clean off sh*t.
Wow what patience! Those must have been excruciatingly painful to work on.
One wrong move and you damage or lose an almost 40 year old image.
@Ryan first off thank you for properly cleaning these images! There are far too many people putting out images with dust all over them and...
Yeah, I too miss seeing that car at the Roundup, especially in the early years.
I've got some great shots of it at Jo's back when that the was the...
I'm not going to argue the finer points of what is period correct (although I'm a stickler for correctness based on photographic documentation),...
Is the green with black fenders going to be the finished colors?
I hope so, it looks great.
Here's a couple more great ones.

I admit that digital has it's advantages and areas of superiority to film.
Yet, for me choosing to shoot film goes hand in hand with having a hot...
@HEMI32, thanks for posting all of those pictures. That one at Monterey is really great. That's like the epitome of a perfect summer day.
Man that thing is looking primo!
Oh and in case you want to add another to your stable; this popped up on the Austin Craigslist the other day....
30+ years ago I saw a car similar to this at the Corvette swap meet in Puyallup, WA. The NDRA was just getting going and there were still quite a...
I've got one of those! I bought it at the Puyallup Corvette Swap meet back in the late 80s.
Sorry I don't have an answer for you as to who made it...
I love those!
Here's another good one.
@drdave I love the rake! It reminds me of an Early Times Car Club type of car.
@Gotgas your car is looking so good! I assume at this rate it'll be finished in time for the Roundup?
The Swiss Cheese Pontiac ( and the Nomads if I still had enough money). Id' enjoy it for a little while and then sell it. As much as I love...
