Jim’s Comments

What started out a a nice Kodak Color Print had definately faded over the late 50 plus years. The Class C Modified Roadster of Fruediger & Cobbs is seen at Bonneville in '56. Driven by Bob Bequette, it ran 184.80 mph powerwd by a blown Merc flattie. That was good enough for third in class. The front drive blower setup was borrowed from Tom Cobbs' record setting no. 25 coupe. ©AHRF/Clif Wheeler 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.
