Default Bonneville 1953

Bonneville 1953 with Ron Sommer & Paul Lohry

Maybe Iím getting too excited here, but I think itís pretty darn amazing we are still finding good hot rod footage from over 60 years ago,
let alone stuff shot in color. Today I present to you over 7 minutes of well-filmed 8mm taken by Ron Sommer at the Bonnevilleís Speed Trials for 1953.
What a year, it was too! Youíll see the Chrisman Coupe, the Bean Bandits, the debut run of the Shadoff Special streamliner,
and many more great cars taking runs on the salt. I love the shots taken from the push vehicle and running along side as competitors left the line.
Watching this film makes me wish I could have been there so badly, and makes me hope the salt comes back even more!
