Best thread ever on the HAMB.
That last pic could be the coolest picture ever taken.
thank you great
That last pic needs to be in the '08 HAMB calender! That's what it's all about.
Great pics!!! Very very nice of you and owner to share. What a treat!!!!
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.
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
Many, many thanks to Bob, Curt, and Jimmy...I feel lucky to be able to take a peek at the past...
Everytime I get bummed about mindless chatter and self-promoting dorks on the HAMB, a KILLER POST liek this comes up, and its all worth it!!!!!
Take notes, boys. Build your ride with continuity.
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,
awesome pics..simply awesome.. thanks for sharing man..
i gotta say this truly captures the spirit of hotrodding.. people making cool stuff and trying to go fast by being innovative... inliners, hudsons, flatheads, anything they could afford and sling together to get out there...
WHy wasn't i born 60 years ago!!!???
Now Thats a thread!!
Awesome pics - looks like a spread you'd see in Rodder's Journal.
wow, what great pics. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.
A rare find you have there. Thanks for sharing.
Nice to find a strong signal in the noise.
Brilliant. Thank you so much.
What a treasure trove! Pre-war photos are rare and this is an incredible collection. Good on ya for sharing! I know Henry Astor at the AHRF would love to see them, too.
Great pics. Thanks for posting. Never get enough of those kinds of shots and it just leaves me wanting to see more. Got any??
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!
All these photos are already on the AHRF.com site.
But of course there not full size and you can't save them!
wow.......that's it, just wow.
Absolutely priceless thanks so much for sharing.
Awesome! Thanks for posting. Love it! That last photo kicks ass!
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.
Please don't show us your tattoos, Most hambworthy pic post I have seen yet. Thank you very much.
Wow! Thanks for posting these are awesome! Love the camp shot.
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.
Thankyou thankyou thankyou.
And, thankyou! Awesome pictures.
Thanks for making my day better!
