I thought there were no "skinny" girls back in the day? I hope she's ridin' down to get a sandwich.
It is a great post for the Willys lovers. A 37 sedan and 35 Panel (far side of the intersection).
Keep 'em coming!
She's riding a Raleigh Wisp... my brother had one... like a moped only worse!
Most probably supplied direct from the Raleigh factory as the registration number is a Nottingham one where Raleigh were sited.
Twiggy's still going strong and still a very slim lady!
few years ago i used to laugh my ass off on the HAMB. some one posted a picture of a couple of girls and some one reposted (no one bitched about reposting or taking up band width) and said "it looks like denise diplock" it was funny laughed my ass off comedy is all in the timing!!! also rousted many coments from other fun loveing HAMBers resulting in a thread icon...Denise Diplock, I didn't even know she was a real person all this fun at Denises expense!!!! and i'm sure she doesn't even know!!!! what does denise have to do with hotrods???? every thing!
I've followed the adventures of Denise since the first post here on the HAMB - I did'nt know that there really was a Denise nor which one they were referring to until just a few pages back.
Denise (If you ever find this post), I'm glad to see that you have had a wonderful life.
Captioned "rare old Miller racecar, examined by customs inspectors," dated 1959, no more information, it is clearly an old Miller racecar, complete with inter-cooler, but no more information...
Football tryouts were a lot tougher back in the day, eh?

Caption: Photograph caption dated October 9, 1956 reads, "Members of 'Throttle Queens' put last touches to their pride and joy, club coupe which will compete against male-driven car at the San Fernando Drag Strip. From left are Wilma Brown, Pat Marian, Pat Field, the driver, and June Minnich. Car hit 97 miles per hour and won trophy in its division."
Photograph caption dated April 6, 1951 reads, "High trees and other shrubbery hide raided 'palace of illicit pleasure' from neighboring swanky homes in Hollywood Hills. Here, film stars and wealthy players cavorted in the nude with beautiful 'partygirls.' A little black book found in the place contained names of hundreds of filmdom's personalities. The convertible Cadillac allegedly belongs to Kal Rubin, one of the men nabbed in raid."
Ascot Speedway, 1926, if I recall correctly, there were several Ascot Speedways in SoCal, the last one in Gardena, not a trace left...not sure where this one was.
"Behind the finish line, Culver Speedway," 1924.
Culver Speedway, 1924
Culver Speedway, 1924. This place was HUGE! Gives a sense of how popular automobile racing was in Southern California in the early '20s
Aerial view of Beverly Hills racetrack, 1922. If I remember correctly, this was a board track.
Hal Roach in front of his studio, 1921. Lot of famous movies from this studio, including Laurel & Hardy
That is I believe Griff Borgeson going thru customs with two Miller front drives he recovered from Europe and brought back home. I believe the Smithsonian has one of them today.

Are you sure this pix of the "Culver" speedway is in Culver City?
I know the old Culver City speedway used to be called the "Dog track" where they raced Greyhounds in the '30's.
Then they raced cars in the '40's.
I vaguely remember this depot in Wichita, Kansas. It was demolished to make way for a bank.
Looks like San Fernado to me.
What a beautiful building. So sad that it's gone
