PETERSON PHOTO COLLECTION ONLINE

 

A small portion of the huge Petersen photo collection has been added to the Getty Stock Photo Archives part of The Enthusiast Network Collection.

 
Some time ago we already reported that the Petersen Collection, then part of the Source Interlink media, now part of The Enthusiast Network (TEN). Since then some more photos have been shared on the online archives of the Getty Stock Photos. Photos (digital files) that can be purchased for any publications, or personal use. There are a number of really interesting Custom Car related photos in the archives now, and if you are into Hot Rods, then there is an even larger number of photos that will appeal to you. At the end of the article there is a link to the complete TEN/Peterson collection on the Getty Images site…. enjoy.

The addition of ’55 Lincoln taillights, installed upside-down, and the body trim from a ’53 Olds make the profile and rear view unique. The car is lowered 3 inches overall.
