You Da' Man!...
Yer' the Best dealer I've found that's dishing out the Best Traditional Hot Rod stash...!
Consider me a steady customer.
Thanks that is some really cool stuff.
No problem at all. Just doing my part to preserve history.
Is it just me or did everyone seem skinny back then, as I get a snack?
Not just you...
Great thread......thanks for all the work on scaning such timeless history.
I'm going to be downloading a whole bunch more in the next day or so.. Mostly Tech articles.
Keep an eye peeled for those!
Cant see the pics, its either my crappy puter or you exceeded the free account bandwidth limit...
you're not the only one, seems they have been moved
Oops. I'll get right on it!
iPhone - TJJ app
Fixed. Sorry about that guys. I had moved them all into albums because my PhotoBucket album was real disorganized. Lesson learned.
No worries man, nothin to apologize at all, youre doin a great work for everybody to enjoy.
Great pics!! Thanks for taking the time to scan and post'em up!!
I'm only going to post all of the articles I have left over except for one. It's a special one so I'm saving it for last because it's a pretty long article and has a lot of details. I'll give you a hint, all of the articles I post tonight would be pretty useful, maybe even mandatory with what the lengthy article involves. I still need to scan about 20-or so pages this Sunday evening so what's left of the 1965 Yearbook will be broken into two parts. One now and one later.
"Basics in Safety"
"How to Wire your Hot Rod"
"How to Buy Used Speed Equipment"
Hum, an article about wiring by Tom McMullen that mentions Auto Electric Engineering (AEE). He owned the company, good product promotion!
I'm pretty sure that everyone else would have done the same. I know I would have.
Maybe not to the extent he did. AEE turned into one of the largest mailorder chopper retailers around and Tom started TRM Publishing and Street Chopper, which did basically the same thing the article did for the early AEE shop. Ended up being a multimillion dollar deal with more magazines, including Street Rodder.
That article is a little piece of the birth of an empire.
More to come tonight.. Stay tuned, folks.
I'm sure you know the importance of the information your sharing.
Thank you so much for taking the time, to do so!
