Hot Rods The Coupes and Sedans of Land Speed Racing

  1. Yeah, Photo Bucket started charging for what was free previously making all images that were hotlinked through their web page now to display as an error unless you subscribe to their services. Its kind of like they're holding the images hostage until me and others pay up. It's only a mere $399 a year for 3rd party hosting! This was all enacted June 26th. Thanks Photo Bucket!

    S. Baker might have been the owner, with Don Corwin as a driver? Members of the COUPE CLUB.

    It's getting harder to keep from duplicating cars already posted, so to keep this thread rolling, I'm going to post some later model coupes and sedans. These photos belong to the Boren family.

    It is neat that the pictures in the threads like this one, and many other threads here on the HAMB, pay homage to the men and women who raced back then, a lot of them now gone. And a real big thanks to the racers, and families of the racers that took the time to take photos back in those early days, so that those people and history live on.

    Very similar to the color scheme my grandpa Harry used on the coupe after he got it from the Chrismans!

    I was just thinking that exact thing. Doesn't seem to me like they were there in other photos. What always makes me laugh is that they drove the car in my grandpa's color scheme with their old helmet that matched the old paint still.

    The more I see these pictures the more it confirms my worries about the uncertain future of this car and more importantly to me what it was before Jerry. Does anyone know where Jerry got it?

    I'll work on some later. Unfortunately I don't have a decent scanner setup at the moment so it'll peoproba be lo-fi photos of lo-fi printed photos! I'm sure you all will get the idea and appreciate anyways.
