Jim’s Comments

The Mardon & Ohly Class CX Roadster takes off on a run at Bonneville in 1959. The new car was powered by a 258" Ford and was looking to break the class record of 168.797 mph set in '56 by the Perry Boys. The best they could do by the end of the week was a 168.85 mph run and had to settle for a fifth in class. The Morris Bros. & Sturdy grabbed a first in class with a speed of 184.48 mph and bumped the old record to 174.7155 mph. ©AHRF/Gary Hartsock 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.
