do polaroids count?
I spend a lot of time looking at pictures and reading on H.A.M.B. A couple of weeks ago I found this picture on Moriarity’s 3x3 Photo Thread. I took it in 1962 with my Brownie Hawkeye in front of my parents house in Jacksonville, AR. This car and I go way back. I drove it my Junior and Senior high school years ’58 -’60. Moriarity gave the picture back to me and I got it today. The picture on the right is it in my shop today. Thank you Moriarity and Thank you H.A.M.B.
My 65 GTO ordered to my specs way back wen .
As much as I enjoy owning old photos, It was a pleasure for me to send it to you
Most of theses are Dad’s 57 some are my uncle Jack’s 57
Dad and his buddy bought this wrecked 57 and started on a drag car but never finished it.
What the hell is this? I always thought it was one of the “cerv” corvettes but I couldn’t find it on line. I believe the picture was taken at Road America in the 60’s
I'm pretty sure that's the 1962 Monza GT car ... had Corvair power. 777 car was the silver one, with a top. There's a red matching roadster version somewhere ... and supposedly John Fitch based his '66 Fitch Phoenix on these two cars.
Here ya' go >>
Great pictures lothiandon I recognize a lot of those cares although I don't remember the names I was at the first rod show in Rockville MD which then moved to Timonium they where the best shows I ever went to. Met a lot of good people there, my last time was in 79, then in 80 I moved to AZ and NSRA moved to York PA. I've never gone to the show in York.
I am starting to hate this thread. Every time I look at it, I am brought to mind of all of the "3 X 3"'s I have lost. My brand new '67 Corvette coupe and my '66 "Homebuilt" "T"- bucket with an 270" Dodge hemi, I knew that these pictures would be important some day, but Damn, they just got away some how.
(The two divorces didn't help.)
Searched through to find my 3 x 3 I think they are all B&W.
The day I bought my 62""
Great thread idea. Same here with the eBay and other online purchases. I’ll post a bunch more later.
small sample from my collection
Scotty, I wanted to see if I could clean this one up...
....................Thanks, Pat. Hope you enjoyed the memories..........Don.
I took this picture of the MG with Dave and Willie and the trophy at Westhampton in 62 or 63 I used a Kodak camera I think Instamatic or Brownie I didn't have anything else. Why is the picture not in the square format? I seem to remember maybe the #120 or 620 film. As a side note looking at this picture makes me happy and sad, everyone in the picture is gone. Dave and Willie at least got to see the car restored and Willie actually came to the track with me and watched it race. Those where good times.
More to come
gee willikers this a great thread. Please keep them coming and thank you to all that have posted already,, cheers
NSRA Nats, Detroit 1972.
First photo is Pete Van Iderstein’s (sp?)
highboy, next is unidentified, last is the Best Roadster pick, it was a Brown Mold body on a Mike Martens frame. Martens was first with repro Deuce frame rails and also built full chassis.
Motown again, ‘72.
First two photos are Kurt McCormick’s ‘32 with the blown 426 hemi, it had run a nailhead before this. Next two are unknown, but IIRC the channeled 3W in the second to last photo might have crashed in later years on the way home from a show and gotten wrecked.
First four are of a ‘32 that I’m pretty sure was owned by a guy that hung with Jon Wright, the chromer. The chopped and channeled 5’er was really nice, ran an FE and slicks, just had a nice attitude. Last one is unknown.
Somehow this was the only Tudor I shot, looks like it was a nice one!
‘72 Nats, “T” time-
Nice fendered T with a well dressed J-2.
Blown hemi, with Joe Panek’s Roto-Faze Isoport manifold. Blowers were pretty common there, here’s a
SBC/6-71. Next is Lee Nieman’s wildly painted T bucket with a 4-71, I think he ran a 283. Yellow one is Bill Brutsman’s car, wasn’t he an East Coast NSRA Rep? How about that channeled ‘27 with a Hilborn injected BBC and the right wheels and rubber to complete the racy theme? Last is Jon Wright’s great T.
‘72 Nats, Model 40’s-
A perfect ‘34 Roadster with a beautifully detailed 4-71 blown flathead. All the rest except the last are unknown. I can’t recall the name of the guy that had the low ‘34 sedan but it was a well known Michigan car, still exists too, somewhere.
‘72 Nats, Model A’s-
The 4-71 blown small block was in the raked coupe. Posies Delivery, before he went off the deep end styling-wise. JMO, your mileage may vary.
Last two are a Ford in a Ford and a nice Victoria.
‘72 Nats photos again-
A couple of cool Willys’, nice ‘32 Chevy highboy sedan and ?. I think it might be another Willys, judging by the cut of the fender and the hood latch.
That’s all folks
