60's style hot rods
« on: November 26, 2012, 11:21:01 PM »
The mid-late 60's really stand out in the hot rodding world, with the wild paint, tons of chrome, white paint on headers/rear axles/firewalls/etc.  It was a fun time with cars, lots of originality with lots of Model Ts & As.  Here are a few pics of my favorites

 The 2 whitewalled hot rods  ;) are from the earlier 60's, the other from a few years later.

I had a 60's style hot rod...in the 60's.  I initially painted it black lacquer in my garage.  When I was in the Army the car was loaned to custom painter Joe Andersen and he put a flashier paint job on it.

 Nothing like a set of 5-spokes to give it that '60's look . I put these on a few months back for a change from my Eric Vaughn Real Wheels ( they're in storage for a while ).

And striper, yes the 5-spokes definitely give your roadster a 60's vibe.  It's a beautiful hot rod.

Here's a few I know. Blue 32 vicky is Don Thelan's, red 29 Phaeton is Dick Rundell's, Blue 29 sedan with lighter blue flake fenders belonged to Brian Talbert, Yellow 32 roadster is Tom Toomey's, you have Tom Booths T and the T  Roadster pickup belonged to Dick Knudsen. Knudsen's I know because I owned it in the late 60's early 70's.

I really like this A rpu; it epitomizes the late 60's-early 70's style - mismatched wheels, multiple paint styles, etc.  But somehow it all blends in well on this one.

Beppie , I was aware of the Early Times club as they were primarily a club centered in the San Gabriel Valley area of So Cal where I grew up  . I would see these cars driving around town , in the college parking lot and at the local drive in's . Although I never knew any of them personally , their cars left an indelible image in my mind .
