    Yah right... " Many of the cars were award winners and featured in the custom car magazines of the day. The builder of choice for these guys was local customizer Joe Bailon..."

    Looks like a lot of late model customs for the time, and they didn't do their own work?

    Where are the hot rods ??

    There were Hot Rods in the club, but the club has always been more of a Kustom oriented club.And there were many members who did their own work and modifications to their cars.Not everyone has all the skills to build a car all by themselves..Customizing was always about updating and restyling and being different, hence the word "Custom"

    Peterson Auto Wreckers reminds me of Alan Cardoza, A Good Guy.
    in the 50's "Satans Angels" were all Customs, Hot rods were in the "Hayward Rod Benders".

    How many of the original cars from the 50's are still around?

    That's actually a great question. I'm not really sure to be honest with you. Livingston's Chevy he has now is a recreation of his Award winning Kustom from the 50's.Im sure they are out there somewhere.

    Thanks for sharing pics everybody, very interesting to take a look at these cars and their history. I appreciate your work! Makes me wonder where are all the original 50s cars. Sure they are somewhere outta here.

    No, I don't hate the cars, they are nice customs. But my point was, it sounded like they were a bunch of buyers instead of builders, paying Baillon to do the work.

    I don't care if you can do professional work, I'd rather you grab a wrench than your wallet.

    And I wondered where the hot rods were, if any in the club....

    The only car from the early photos that I know still exists is the Sonny Morris Merc. It is somewhere back east and seems to show up at some of the eastern shows. Franks chevy is a re-creation and I do know Ted Leventhal is re-creating his green chevy , as for the other cars , they seem to have vanished.

    You're entitled to your opinion of course.These were kids, not Mid Life crisis millionaires, so they didnt have a lot of money.Bailon contributed and helped more than he charged.It was good for business since most of these cars ended up in magazines and showing at the Oakland Roadster Show..sorta win win for both parties.

    In the 50,s the auto shop at Hayward High was pretty active. Most of the guys that I knew did their own work as much as possible.

  21. Thanks so much for posting the "now" pics of the cars and the owners. Great to see that so many of both are still around. What a fabulous thread this has turned out to be.

    I thought I would bring this to the top by posting a photo I just got. Frank Livingston gave me this Colorized Version of the Iconic 1957 club photo. I thought it was pretty cool!

    Time for an update. Last weekend the club was invited to attend the Sacramento Autorama. After a couple of months of planning and preparation, we arrived with 14 cars and a club display with Photos and memorabilia. A good time was had by all!

    Damn nice cars. Nice to see them being driven. Wish our weather was that nice this time of year (it was -5 at 7am this morning and still lots of snow everywhere :( ) .
