Now that's a Hot Rod! Love the headers!
Wow, that's when there was design in buildings. Cool place to stop.
Someone needs to build a time machine, hell LA even looked cool back then.
What a cool ass shop. If you can't find a old building, build it old!
If you grew up in Stockton/Lodi area you knew that the Shell station on Pacific was owned by Walt Orr and he drove the Fossil.
Worked at a little larger shell station than the picture. Washed every windshield even with a buck worth of gas. It became a hot rod hangout on...
Wow great story, my brother won a local model car contest at the local Ford dealership (54 Ford Convert), got me interested at young age and here...
Great stuff! Made my day, especially helping load the car, what fun!
Great video, to go that fast in a "new" car, wow!
One of my favorite Speed shops. Growing up in the valley the trip over to Hayward to look/buy cool speed stuff was always fun. Saw them race at...
It's worth the trip to see all the different types of cars built to go fast and throw in the Hot Rods that come to watch and it a for sure winner.
If it's built right, it can look good no matter how many doors it has....like it!
Old Digger with wheels up! Cool.
Love the old pics of Freemont, always a good time racing there in the 60s.
Way to be cool.
Saw the 39 chevy over in Arizona. He does drive them too!
Cool that old stuff is still out there, even though it wasn't a 32 ford. I chased many over the years and even when it turned out to be a 35...
Just right. Looked cool then, looks cool now.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Love the hay bales. Raced Kingdon Drag strip when that's what they had for "guard" rails. Looks fun, remind us next year.
Like those 5W, neat old hot rod.
Looks like a blast, may make the long trip from socal next year.....
Low budget or no budget is the way many raced.....not so sure that wasn't a whole bunch better than now.
Love 5 W and that one is just right. Even if he didn't get an award, he'd still be a winner!
Grew up cruising Stockton, Lodi and yes Modesto in that time. What makes this movie so good is you can relate to it no mater what town you grow up...
Nicely done, looks good no mater the brand.
They look good on a lot of different cars, and it's an easy way to change the look of a vehicle.
Stock, semi custom or even a full custom is the way we described them.
Simple and cheap the way racing was intended to be.
Very nice wagon, cool for going to school....
