These have probably not seen the light of day in decades and now they're protected in archival sleeves in closed notebooks. The Kadachromes look perfect, the Ektachromes have a red tint. I scanned on a Nikon coolscan 5000 that automatically does a great job of getting rid of dust and scratches and color-corrects for the Ektachromes.

I'm thinking these are from 1956...

Year and Air Force base, anyone (there's a B-29 in the background)?



Are the Borden's booth and trucks significant? Maybe they could place the setting.

The 1956 Auburn Meet took place in mid-October. Note the bare trees.

I was there. So were Gordon Buehrig, Herb Snow, Cornelius Van Ranst, Alex Tremulis, etc. Who knew we were supposed to record their every word?

In the photo of the Auburn with the hood open, there's a J Duesenberg in the background, anyone able to identify which car it is? The trunk design might help give it away. I like the color combination.

I think I've seen Richard Jones' name, the noted Tucker restoration expert, in several of the ACD newsletters. If so, then this must be his wife on the right with Chrissie Tremulis. I don't think he gets to spend much time browsing these forums anymore. If you know him, please send him your warmest regards and a huge THANK YOU for saving so many of these wonderful cars from ending up in the crusher...

UPDATE: This is Betty Jones, but not of Tucker fame. Anyone know of another ACD Betty Jones?

That must be this one. You're not the only one who admired it:
