    Reath Automotive was a sanctuary for most hot rod/drag race guys/girls. They provided much needed information for all kinds of builds from all out drag racers to mild motor rebuilds for the local hot rod community. They were well known to say the least. My interpretation of what we could have seen in the 1958-62 era could have been this yellow Altered Coupe at Lions Dragstrip every weekend. The big sponsorship lettering on the back trunk area was a sign of the “big time.” The 13 was the zip code and no, I did not forget that California is now CA. Back then, the abbreviation was Calif. HEmlock 6-3271 is the phone number.

    The catch all slogan is HEmlock. A hefty potion of this will put you down within a quarter mile. Intimidation at its finest. The motor could have been any number of motors from 671 SBC, 671 hemi or blown/injected big Oldsmobile motors. The racers sponsored by Reath Automotive had the thing going with motor exchanges in various race cars from Modified Roadsters, to Competition Coupes, to Altered Coupes/Sedans.


    At Reath Automotive, it was a happy family with weekly chats with the big old guy, whenever we went to get some speed parts or pick up a set of pistons, or such. It did not matter if the sponsorship was large or small or even newbies like my brother and me. He had us join in the discussions and idea exchanges on every visit to the shop on 10th and Cherry Avenue. Joe Reath knew we were locals, having seen us race at Lions on plenty of weekends. But as new guys on the drag race scene, there was a ton of information coming our way on those impromptu chats at the shop.

    We definitely miss that little old shop on 10th and Cherry Avenue. By 1964, and 10 years at the old location, they had started creating the huge corner building at 33rd and Cherry Avenue, closer to Bixby Knolls.

    I missed last weeks FAS because I was BANNED for a couple of days. Seems while helping a HAMBer identify a '32 Chevy Confederate, I jokingly mentioned a certain piece of cloth that some southerners sometimes hang on a pole:eek:. Too political !?!? (and this'll probably get me banned again):(

    Anyway, once again, some more of my old art work.
    COLOR stuff is old T-shirt art for our clubs annual car show. Most of it is drawn 4-color so it could be digitized for silk screen or transfer.
    BLACK & WHITE stuff for Junkyard News which I co-pulished in the '80s, Also some old car show flyer art.
    CARTOONS from Street Rodder Magazine...was a Contributing Artist for them in the '70s. early '80s

    Almost have my bucket as a roller. Waiting on spindles to be machined.
    Ignore the ugly roller wheels.

    Finally finished up this commission last week for one of my Color Vintiques projects. Phyllis Lindsley was wife of Jim Lindsley, dry lakes and Bonneville legend. Phyllis was active as SCTA timing recorder, Wally Park's secretary and mother to a whole family of racers. First woman to run a car on the salt at speed, when it still wasn't allowed. (She was helping Otto Crocker test the timing equipment...yea right!) Hand colorized 11x14 from family B&W photo.
