    Best thread ever on the HAMB.

    That last pic could be the coolest picture ever taken.

    That last pic needs to be in the '08 HAMB calender! That's what it's all about.

    I was thinking the same thing. These would be awesome printed in a little book, like Hop Up sized. Just a little foreward, no captions. Just pictures. Goddamn! What an inspirational point in history. Thank you JimmyB, and thank Curt, for sharing.
     
  6. GREAT! It is so much fun to study each picture, looking for everything, like the 36 coupe in the background, no printed t-shirts, no t-shirts, many cars running the Ford double whites, etc. Any chance we could get some really good copies? Any more?
    Thanks for the post

    That stuff is fantastic. The last photo in the series is one of the best vintage racing photos I have ever seen! The sense of speed and the wide open space of the lake bed. If Ansel Adams ever shot a racing photo, that would be it.

    Thanks for sharing the wealth,

    Can't remember where I found these (somewhere on the internet) but I thought they would appeal to this thread's audience. I love the sedan!

  20. All these photos are already on the AHRF.com site.

    But of course there not full size and you can't save them!

    Great Pics!!! I am surprised to see a couple of Chevys. I didn't know anyone ran them in the early days.

    Best picture post....ever. I think I need a new tattoo of that last one. I already have one across my back of two cars (the Peirson '36 coupe (pre-chop) ans an unidentified roadster) racing across a lake. I should post a pic or two.

    I had the pleasure of visiting with Bob in the pit on his 76th birthday, the day his clone car qualified for record. A neat guy to visit with, I wish I could have known him better. Thank you for sharing the begining of the story.
