Video: Pre-war Lakebed Hot Rod Racing

A great video of hot rodding days gone by.  It is described by its creator, Tommy Lorbeer, as follows:

“My dad raced his AV8 roadster at the dry lakes when he was in high school, prior to WWII. My Uncle Tommy took his 8mm camera along. There are a lot of iconic cars in this footage, and a lot of iconic young guys. Enjoy.”
