Anybody else have anything ?
It is amazing how few photos have surfaced, considering how many people attended those shows over 60 years.
I still am looking for a photo of my friend Gene Custer's 1950 Ford Convertible semi custom built by Fairlane collision. Coral color paint with a white top. Late fiftie's.
Also the 1940 Ford coupe with flames in the 1958 show. Owned by Pete's custom collision and flamed and striped by Paul Hatton. I was there when they painted it
Great memories for a young kid, now an old man.
not the best pictures but these are from a1961 rodding and restlying mag 61 autorama

Lovely photo, I work for a television show and was wondering if I could get in contact with you to obtain permission to use some of your photos for an episode.
Email me at email@example.com if you're interested!

Nope Cherry Hill and Inkster Rd...technically Inkster....next to what was a Burger Chef..I grew up a half a mile south of there near Inkster Park. Here’s a pic of local Drag Legend Clyde Dietrick out front of Antieau’s Shop. Mr Antieau was very cool to us kids..when we were turning our bikes into choppers by cutting forks up and pounding them on to keep them on, he’d throw a bead on them for us..he had the best sign...I can fix anything except the break of day, the crack of dawn, and a broken heart..
Car I worked building in the 1964 Detroit Auto Show.
Vanguard Warrior 1
Work done in Dallas at Vanguard Motors and Tom Johnson's shop.
Mid-engine German Ford V4, ultra lightweight, even seat frames were fixed and bolted-in part of the chassis - pedals and steering column were adjustable. Designed to compete with MG, Triumph, Sunbeam, Porsche 356 et al
Used 1962 Ford Mustang Concept 1 chassis and did things like moved radiator(s) from sides to front, raised rollbar incorporating rear glass, installed real windshield, re-styled front to accommodate radiator etc.
ETA: If you look closely you will see details like the steering wheel, dash and rear quarter panel lines of our car that made it into first generation Ford Mustangs.
Didn't know this thread existed so here's a few from the eighties and nineties...
I did not know this thread existed also. As a 83 year old ex Michigan hoodlum I knew many of the people mentioned in the thread. I was the one who built the old timing tower at the New Baltimore drag strip.
