complaints, yours and mine

The inbox lately has been full of the usual interesting mix of old-timey photos and fond memories, leavened with folks calling us out for the mistakes that creep into our copy, whether by oversight or lack of knowledge. Two stand out, though, complaining that I’ve run too many early 1930s Fords in the magazine. Wait, what? Yes, two similar cars ran on back-to-back covers recently, Tom Morris’s red Model A roadster in Nov. 2018 and Austin Grabowski’s maroon ’32 roadster in Jan. 2019. Yet they told such different stories. One was a survivor from the late 1940s, teaching us lessons of how hot rods were built 60 years ago. The other was crafted by a 21st century college student who took those decades-old lessons and made them his own. Look at it another…

HOT ROD dispatched Tex Smith to El Mirage to cover the season-ending SCTA meet in November 1963, some 15 years after Lee Hammock took photos on the lake for our cover story. Yet there’s a timeless quality to photos of roadsters racing on the lake bed, so much so that one year’s photography could almost pass for earlier shots. Almost. There were no Hemis in 1948, of course, and the station wagon at left and Chrysler sedan in back were years away from production, too. But the sight of two gearheads working to make an old Ford go faster could be from any time, be it 1948, 1963, or even right about now. This shot served as the lead photo for “Dry Lakes,” Tex’s story in the January 1964 HRM. “The course…

marc gewertz wins 2018 leslie lovett memorial photo contest

NHRA photographer and frequent Deluxe contributor Marc Gewertz took First Place in the annual photography contest, held during the NHRA California Hot Rod Reunion and named for his late predecessor as NHRA’s chief photographer, Leslie Lovett. The top three finishers were honored in a trackside ceremony just prior to final eliminations. Gewertz’s black-and-white image of a smoke-filled exhibition match during Sears Point International Raceway’s 1992 Jim Davis Memorial Meet is the first winning entry captured at a nostalgia drag event since the contest debuted in 1995. Pioneer Top Fuel racer Art Chrisman’s restored Hustler I Chrysler dragster is shown blasting to an early lead over Mike McClellan in the dual-Chevy Champion Speed Shop Special. A panel of veteran journalists, editors, and photographers voted Second Place honors to Don Hale for a head-on…

Hot Rod Empire: Robert E. Petersen and the Creation of the World’s Most Popular Car and Motorcycle Magazines, by Matt Stone with Gigi Carleton, 208 pages, hardbound; Motorbooks, quartoknows.com/motorbooks Fresh off his Dean Batchelor Award–winning biography of Ed Iskenderian, veteran journalist and former Motor Trend executive editor Matt Stone charts the multifaceted accomplishments of Robert E. Petersen and his wife, Margie. While his namesake publishing company looms largest in his legacy, Petersen was so much more than just a magazine publisher. This book sheds light on those varied pursuits, from his love of the outdoors to the landmark automotive museum that bears his name. Stone could not have had a better coauthor, as Carleton spent more than 40 years as the Petersen’s executive secretary and personal manager. Their insight, along with…

chari-t: handmade roadster raffled for good cause

Nine years ago, hot rod builder Doug Siemen met hot rodding promoter John Wells at a swap meet. The two immediately hit it off, and Siemen told Wells that if he ever needed help with any of his events, he would be more than happy to lend a hand. Siemen soon found himself working the front gate at the first Vintage Torquefest. He wound up helping at all of Wells’ hot rod shows, including the Retro Rewind in Dubuque, Iowa, and the Iron Invasion show in Woodstock, Illinois. Wells’ shows benefit the Helping Hannah’s Heart foundation, a charity created by the Wells family to assist families in need who are dealing with a child with Critical Aortic Stenosis or a related congenital heart defect. Their own daughter and the foundation’s namesake,…

juxtapoz comes to the petersen

“Auto-Didactic: The Juxtapoz School” at the Petersen Automotive Museum presents the work of some 50 artists who have contributed to the underground-culture magazine and who “continually helped redefine the role and imagery of automobiles in contemporary art,” said the museum. The exhibit, which runs through June 2019, consists of artwork, sculpture, and several vehicles, including Robert Williams’ brightly colored Prickly Heat ’32 roadster, Ed Roth’s Orbitron, Von Dutch’s Kenford truck, and a ’59 Cadillac titled “The New and Improved Ultima Suprema Deluxa” that was lavishly decorated by Kenny Scharf. “At the Petersen, we see cars beyond their utilitarian purpose,” said the museum’s executive director, Terry L. Karges. “Cars are rolling pieces of art and can exist amongst traditional and avant-garde masterpieces in an equally compelling way. This new exhibit proves this…
