  • Hot rods in the Sixties

    This link shows many interesting cars at a show at the Cow Palace in the 60's. It includes Craig Breedlove's car, briefly. Also, some time at the track. Hope you haven't seen it before.

    Pretty cool! .... My thoughts...where are those rods now?

    Who inspired who...the artist of the Rat Fink cartoons in Mad Magazine or the creators of the Rods? Back then, I was stationed at Bergstrom AFB in Austin Texas spending evenings harassing the girls at Steak n Shake.

    Lyndon Johnson was conspiring to send me to Vietnam and I was tooling around Texas in a 327 Powered '53 custom cab Chevy truck.

      That's very cool! I really miss Carlsbad Raceway... my brother ran there a lot in the 60s. Lots of good memories in that show...

        Very good job on the slide show and music and thanks for sharing. Several of the custom rods I have to believe if national show winners were probably used as models for some of the early hot wheels cars. When Hot Wheels were introduced in 1968, I was 12 yrs old and my brother and I had quite a large collection. I believe later own when in college my mother gave them away or donated them to Salvation Army. Of course some of the first 1968 Hot Wheels if I still had them would be worth several 100's of dollars now believe it or not.
