Promotional newsreels featuring a variety of Chevrolet-centric stories, including: the building of Norris Dam in Tennessee; an automobile racing an ice boat across a lake in Mt. Clemens, Michigan; gasoline economy tests on Detroit streets; women showing off their hairstyles in an automobile moving along New York City streets; the Soap Box Derby at Dayton, Ohio; and a miniature dog riding in the glove compartment of an automobile in San Francisco.

Massive 100+ Car Barn Find Collection in Chicago – Jeremy Cliff @YouTube

A massive 100+ car barn find collection in Chicago, IL that I photographed for Mecum Auctions. Inside the building was dozens of amazing finds. So many Shelby Mustangs, Z28 Camaros, even a couple Rolls Royce cars were stashed inside and forgotten about. This video shows a good majority of the cars that were present but from what I was told there were additional cars elsewhere that I didn’t get to see.

Ride along as The Drive Home IV winds from Houston to Detroit – Kurt Ernst @Hemmings

I’ve mentioned The Drive Home in previous posts now you can get a proper feel for the event.

Since 2016, The Drive Home – organized by America’s Automotive Trust – has run a caravan of classic cars and trucks cross-country to Detroit, Michigan, arriving in time for the opening of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in mid-January. The winter use of classic vehicles is not without its detractors, but this year’s The Drive Home IV, which departed Houston, Texas on January 3 and arrived in Detroit, Michigan on January 12, will mark the last time the event is held on salt-encrusted roads. This video, produced by Derek Klein Films and courtesy of LeMay – America’s Car Museum, gives a sense of what it was like to be part of the journey, and why the annual trek is so important to the hobby.

The Duesenberg Hot Rod

Advertisements

Whilst watching a recent edition of Jay Leno’s Garage on YouTube I was reminded of  what a cool car  “The Duesenberg Hot Rod”  actually is!

I saw some pictures of the car years ago and with the mainstream coverage of the old car hobby these days it was nice to see it up close via Jay’s channel.

The car was built back in the 40’s by Hal & Bill Ulrich.

Dave Blake shares an important piece of hot rod history the car won the first nationally sanctioned SCCA drag race!

The Blake family has owned the car since the mid 70’s, Mr Blake’s Father saved the car from being sold and broken up for parts, Mr Blake couldn’t afford to buy the car but traded it for a Cadillac.

Watch the video to hear about the history and the modifications to this piece of Hot Rod history.

 

The car pictured in 2011 via The Hot Rod Disorder blog is I believe based off a 1934 Ford body and Duesy chassis and running gear.

Here’s another shot from Howard Gribble on Flickr with some background on the car.

There is also a really interesting thread on the car from the ACD Club forum here
