Since the last Rumble59 Magalog, you know in terms of German Hot Rod clubs know. Today we travel back in the thirties and forties, in the early days of organised hot Roddings.
Contrary to the popular belief of the regulars, the hot Rodding is no achievement of the fifties. The first beginnings are already in the roaring twenties off, before the first clubs were founded in the thirties and the thing in the fifties was only big, drew to already in the sixties again by the factory hot rods, to be replaced with the muscle cars. Hot Rodding was therefore before the rock ‘n’ roll, is older than the King, and was already stripped from home as the fifties America’s hottest fuel movement only joined the masses. For you, we are descended in the staubigsten corners of the archive to tug at least the most important of the oldest Hot Rod clubs for a small overview of the daylight, so that you can just back a few things at the counter.
No Hot Rod Club of automotive history more myths than to the Outriders have grown up. The oldest Hot Rod Club in the world was already 1932, the year when the legendary Ford Five Window coupe was still a new car, founded by a handful of dry Lake racers and we met are henceforth in Los Angeles behind the Rio Grande gas station on Santa Monica Boulevard, about which at that time led the route 66. The Outriders once again founded in the Achtigerjahren as already in the thirties to a kind of gentlemen’s Club, in whose ranks road hogs and Council Rods have no place and is limited to the number of its members to 50 is.
The most outriders are solvent, prominent, or both, and the cars are accordingly aseptically perfect. Cool, they are so oldschool that they are virtually not represented even in 2014 on the Internet. The Outriders picnic in California takes place once per year, which by personal invitation only access is granted both participants and visitors.
2. Knight Riders
The Knight Riders from Fullerton, California were the wildest Club in the 1930s. The first meeting, 19 demimonde speed freaks came together on November 5, 1934. Already in the following year there were 34 members, the eight Roadster, four sedans and owned several Coupés. You were always famous notorious for their wild parties with black leather jackets, on whose back a Clubpatch was, the Knight Riders. And, as everywhere in life there spat, alcohol, women and swing music when in the game. In May 1935 a realignment of the Club was already necessary, stating that there were only 16 members who devoted themselves to the core thing. Nevertheless was hailed a hard on.
Gopher in German means Gophers or errand. It is not clear whether the boys at the founding of the third oldest hot 1936 rather were Rod clubs for rodents or low wage Jobber. The Gophers were with the first members of SCTA, the Southern California timing Association, which established itself as a neutral instance of timing on the salt marshes of the Southwest.
4. Night Flyers
In contrast to the Knight Riders from Fullerton was to care for the night flyers from Pasadena primarily to motor sport and best times instead of girls and bar sport. Who had to convince at least 75 percent of the old members who wanted to become a member of the 1937 Club, and whose case had to go faster than 90 miles, so equivalent 145 km/h per hour. 145 km/h at the end of the thirties were a pound. The fewest vehicles reached at all three-digit speed regions and when, then had it in the face of weak drum brakes without servo assistance and trample-leaf springs, which would guarantee not always road contact, anyway, no desire to be long beyond of 100 km/h. When the night flyers and order prevailed. Who could pay the weekly contribution from 25 cents in the Club Office, flew out smoke and a membership committed to take part in an official SCTA racing event at least once a year with his sleigh.
5. Road Rebels
The road rebels how many clubs formed in the year of the first great Hot Rod’s booms in 1937 and were not necessarily unusual. This should change in 1946, as a road rebels members Bill Burke the present racer on the El Salt Lake made nervous mirage.
Bill, who served during the second world war as an aircraft mechanic with the Pacific fleet, transferred his professional knowledge of lift, downforce and aerodynamics to hot rods and planted a Ford Flathead in the auxiliary fuel tank one P-51 Mustang and screwed the suppository Ford solid axle under it. The first belly tank which story was born, Bill burned legendary 132 mph, so 212 km/h (!), in the salt and brought fame and glory to his club. in 2009, presented a detailed replica of the first Carnerd Geoffrey Hacker from Tampa, Florida of the gathered community during the Bonneville Speedweek and long-lost belly tank racer of the world, much to the delight of high elderly inventor of this vehicle genre, Bill Burke.
Over eighty years of hot Rodding and no end in sight. The Outriders are clubs such as the hot heads East, Rumblers, road Devils still at the start, and dozens others worldwide continue the legacy. So very well all about gasoline prices, TÜV examiners and environmental zones Pimp, the hot Rodding has been a world war, the Disco era and survived the launch of the PT Cruiser.I’m not worried me there to the next eighty years initial acceleration.
