March 1963, somewhere along Route 66 in California. This 35mm Kodachrome begins a new series by the late photographer and hot-rodder Don Cox, one of the pioneers of dry-lake racing in the postwar years. They were donated to Shorpy by his friend (and "Birth of Hot Rodding"
co-author) Robert Genat. Here we see Don and his 1957 Lincoln Premiere convertible snapped from above by a low-flying confederate.
