    Please keep them early Hot Rod magazine scans coming.
    These show how the 1940's Hot Rods looked that where published in the magazines and how they and the aftermarket products marketed influenced others to built their dream rides.

    I think the photos of the cars and the magazines that helped in building those cars belong in one thread!... perfect

    Kind of funny that HRM misidentified the SG roadster as a Ford!

    Great thread. I also enjoyed the scanned HRM. Seeing the Honest Charlie's Speed Shop and Ed Iskenderian ad in the May 49 HRM makes one realize how long some of these guys have been around the hot rod industry.There's a host of other companies that no longer exist.
    Thanks for posting!

    It's so amazing that some of the first issues are still around. They where sold at the tracks in Cali for the first few issues, not in stores or by subscription. There is a reprint of the first year of Hot Rod in paperback form.

    We need more Jimmy! Do we have to make a 1950s thread to keep these coming? I wish somebody with a good collection could do the same with early motor trend magazines as well.... ;)
     
  17. I have every issue of Hot Rod from Nov 1948 to Feb 1960 plan to slowly scan them all. Somehow I have misplaced Dec 1958 which I am kinda pissed I can't find :mad::(.

    Oh, and I do have a number of early Motor Trend, not all mind you.

    Great!! Then we're all set :)
     
  21. Yes that is funny, being identified as a '27 T roadster was the most common misconception about the S/G roadster. Gus Maanum's drawing clearly depicts it as a T yet in the same program they correctly id it as a 1925 Chevrolet roadster. Don Montgomery wrongly id'ed it in one of his books as a T roadster and the picture used wasn't even the S/G roadster.

    Yeah I have seen that before, it's his son's car. As it is Preston Tucker Jr. pretty cool though...and I believe there is a thread on that car as it later got a jet engine or something like that :)

    Here are a couple from My Uncle in Laws collection taken in 1949, the roadster was his and the Deuce was his friends car , clocked 104 this day because of engine problems but had a best of 124MPH and was supposed to be one of the fastest Coupes in LA during that time.This roadster clocked at 136 M.P.H. It was the fastest car to go that day. This was in April of 1949.

    Jimmy B---Are there any books or archives on Australian land speed racing? I seem to recall an Australian/NZ version of the US dry lakes/ booneville. Was there much of a 40s/50s hot rod movement there? BILL RINALDI
