    Don't forget to document on the back of each photo:
    Who, what, where and when.
    Makes it so much more meaningful and historic.
    Family albums without names and dates soon become irrelevant.

  8. I have seen this photo of the Cochran Garage a few times since I joined the Hamb 16 years ago, but I don't remember it being in color. HRP

    Thank you.

    The 38 and the era of a lot of the photos is a time that really set the hook in me hard for the passion that plagues my mind most hours now.

    Great photos

    Thanks for the few minutes of entertainment.
    Especially liked the Cochran garage and the kids. The shot of your Buick and Ford in the driveway is pretty cool.

  14. Ryan, we all took a vote and came to the same conclusion: you can't die. You don't have our permission. ;)

    The Cochran Garage is probably my favorite. Those guys look like they could build a motor, win a fist fight and get ALL the chicks.

  20. They are all great pics,,,but the best one is the kids smiling from the window of the car seat!
    Reminds me of mine when they were little !
    Those are genuine smiles on their faces,,,,that can’t be faked.
    Those little guys will remember that all of their lives,,,and the good times they had!
    They look like siblings,,,,and I think I can guess who their daddy is ,,comparing their faces to one of the other photos,,,(the guy holding the wrench,,pulling the flathead)?

    All of the pics are awesome,,,,some great looking hardware and scenic backgrounds.
    Makes you forget about all of the stuff that doesn’t really matter!

    I assume this is the old family garage. Have you ever thought of making a replica?

    I remember seeing the Cadillac neon in person for the first time. It was one of those moments that you can’t unsee. I still think about it .

    Speaking of the Cadillac sign, is there any update on that shiny black coupe parked under it???

    I remember ALL of the Kansas City pics.

    ...that ugly coupe in the Austin Speed Shop is still taunting me from the far corner.

    That was when mechanics weren't afraid to get their hands dirty.

  28. And they were called mechanics, not "technicians".
