    Loved it.

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, moving pictures speak volumes. Wish more old film footage would surface!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Shirley Barris' T bird was parked near Watson's T bird. Very Kool!

    Deuce Daddy Don...did you take that 8mm film in '59 or did you acquire it somehow?

    Thanks for the PM "Groovy"--Like I explained to you,--Yes I took all those back then, brother in law bought that neat 3wd '34 for $800.00 bucks in 1956 as you see it!---From an L.A. fireman.
    As the day wound down, I tried to capture all I could with my trusty Kodak 8mm wind up camera, remember back then, the 3 minute color roll of film was a hefty $5.00 per roll!! (not like todays dvd long lasting stuff).
    Anyway, hope you guys liked it!!!---Grandson is the PC whiz, so he posted this for me, so thanks to him!!----Don

    Roth's first car, Larry Watson cars, and Santa's Village in the San Bernardino Mtns. Epic

    Wow, that's one of the highlights of the H.A.M.B. Thank you!

    At about :13 and again at :40 into the clip, there's a maroon or purple (?) channeled "A" that sure looks like the Niekamp roadster. A lot of the details look right except that it looks to have the doors filled. Any thoughts on that, do you or anyone else remember that one?

    Again, great stuff.

  30. That was awesome but didn't you know that White walls weren't popular back then? Nor were lowered cars. This is according to some experts on this site!!! LOL
