DR DAVES 80S PHOTO COLLECTION
David Aka “Dr. Dave” has started to share his 1980’s and 1990’s Custom Car Photo Collection on the Custom Car Photo Archive. This article shows a small collection.
David, (Aka Dr. Dave) has been into Custom Cars for as long as he remembers. Together with his father he has visited many custom car shows since the early 1980’s. The team always carried their trusty camera with them to capture the cars they liked the most. Recently Dave has started to scan his huge collection of photos and is going to share them with us on the Custom Car Photo Archive. This way everybody can enjoy these photos.
Photos from an important era in the history of Custom Cars. The Customs were just starting to come back for a long hibernation. And many cars captured by Dave and his father have caused quite a stir among young car lovers who first learned about Custom Cars in the 1980’s… including this author.
Dave’s photos take me back in time when I had a few US car magazines with some of these cars features or just small photos of some car show event features. A trip into memory lane, when hours were spend with the Mike Key lead Sleads book and Hot Rod Magazine’s Custom Cars studying all those photos of magical 80’s custom cars.
[box_light]This article shows just a few of the many photos Dave has taken at the KKOA Hangin’ Dice Nats in Fort Smith, Arkansas in 1987. The complete 1987 folder is on the CCPA now. Dave’s whole collection will be shared on the Custom Car Photo Archive in the next couple of weeks/month when Dave gets around to scan the rest.
Be sure to check back on the Custom Car Photo Archive regularly for new updates.[/box_light]
This 46-48 Ford I remember very clearly from the Mike Key “lead Sleds” book. It had a few photos of this car including one from the interior showing the swivel seats. The Lincoln taillights are a nice touch.
Thank you David for sharing these and all the other photos from your Collection.
