I thought when I was a kid, there must be a "Hot Rodder" at LIFE magazine
Guess not many!
Last pic may not be a teen!
Google is your friend!
Neat A roadster, but the Buick? in the background is something I would have in my garage...
Sent from my SM-G955F using The H.A.M.B. mobile app
Here's one more.
Never saw this one before.
You gotta click on it (the jpeg) It won't print
I'm no good at this but....
More! All from Life at a Barris shop photo shoot.
Love to see that little rear engine dragster finished....
Maybe I'll look!
That was probably a belly tanker to run at the lakes.
I believe it is the Chet Herbert Beast 4.
BamaMav & lurker mick,
You guys prove this place has all the answers!!!!
With the title of the thread I thought there would only be one photo. The last car in the last “Life” Magazine..
Nope you can’t make me say it ....... but I can think it..
In order to find the last car in the last issue of Life Magazine
it looks like you would have to buy one.
You are right.
You didn't ask to see the last photo of a car in Life.
You only pointed out there should have been only one photo!
This one is interesting.....!
my folks got Life mag, sure was fun lookin thru it
The article reads - These photographs were taken by Francis Miller for LIFE magazine of an all-girls hot rod club called “The Dragettes” in what appears to be 1950s Kansas City.
And another iconic life magazine cover. HRP
Kookie and Ivo?...
Anyways...yeah, Life was There...
When Life Magazine first uploaded their collection there were no watermarks and you could download the original huge size. Lasted for about a year or two until you see what you have today.
You can search the google hosted Life archive here:
Most of you have probably seen these from Pomona 1952.
If not then you have something to talk about.
Yup. Ivo won.
Thanks Ned...That's Life in the Fast Lane......good to know...those fellas were winners even when they lost the race...
