Jim’s Comments

The Champion Spark Plug gang hard at work visiting most of the garages in Gasoline Alley during the month of May before the running of the 1962 Indianopolis 500. We don't know who Mr. Mason is but we know the other two. They are Southern California Hot Rodders that go by the name of Frank Coon and Bobby Strahlman. Frank won the race with his partner Jim Travers in '53 and '54 and who knows how many winners Bobby read plugs and did tune ups for. THanks to John Posey for capturing our boys. ©AHRF/Joe Henning Collection.
Hot Rod Photo of the Day

Every day, we post a new hot rod, custom or drag racer photo from the collections currently on Jim Miller’s desk. These are posted at approximately 4 AM Eastern, and you are likely looking at a photo that has rarely been seen outside of family and friends. Jim’s comments may reflect the photo owner’s knowledge or may result from the extensive research that Jim conducts. Each photo then goes into our on-site Photo Gallery, where you can review the most recent 20 photos.
