take a look through Hot Rods archives... online

they were there for a bit of everything, drag racing, Bonneville, Pike Peak, and baja racing

I believe the whole reason that Getty images has all the digital versions was that the company that now owns Hot Rod, and the photos in the filing cabinets, wanted to make money from everything and anything in the Hot Rod legacy, and so they went into business with Getty. Getty takes all the original photos and makes a high quality digital scan, now creating a database of the images that is searchable, will never deteriorate, and is infinitely duplicateable... and the other side of it is that they can now try and sell the shit out of all those old photos. Meanwhile they are online for interested poeple to look through, and get completely engrossed in while wasting many hours looking around.
