    Thanks for posting these. You very rarely see photos of that time period in color. ...so, all cars back then weren't black...

    As Tom Brokaw coined the term, these men (and the women who supported them) were truely our Greatest Generation. We owe so much to them from our day to day freedoms to the inspiration that they provided to us. Dick Kraft served in the Merchant Marines & Vic Edelbrock Sr. utilized his machinist skills to weld in the Todd Shipyards in Long Beach hand fabricating aircraft parts. Veda Orr distributed her own newsletter to more than 750 service men all around the world for free and personally corresponded with hundreds as well. These are just a couple of examples, of which I know there are many.

    Great stuff, thanks for sharing the photos, Mr. Kellogg!

    I especially like seeing the variety of cars that were raced at El Mirage during that time period.

    I love picture number two... One lone tomata sitting on a box of support gear amidst 250 testosterone filled guys, and not a one of 'em paying any attention to her..

    Love it!!

    In 1947 I was in hi school at Inglewood, Ca. home of the many icons of Hot Rodding, & the buzz was always about "going to the lakes" each week, then hearing who had the fastest times the following week!

    I know for a fact that my 32 roadster was in this frenzy of lakes racing, when I bought it in pieces in 1962, I had to cut out the roll bar flanges in the trunk area that were welded to the frame,---patch the floor boards around the bell housing area,---& replace the cut out dash panel, which was just a big hole staring at you.
    '39 tailight holes in rear panel,---door handles leaded in,---cowl vent leaded in,---radio antenna holes drivers side leaded in,---. tonneau cockpit cover snap holes leaded in.
    I have checked all the publications on lakes racing showing pix of 32 roadsters, & found a couple that COULD be mine, but I am afraid I never will know the truth of the matter, especially when a thread like this comes up on the HAMB, I always check it out!!!!-------Don
