Last Call- Throttle Stompers Edition

hotrodsinpomona1952 Groucho Marx famously averred that he’d never join any club that would have him as a member. Marx was never – to the best of my knowledge – a member of the Throttle Stompers, or any other car club. It was his brother, Harpo who was lured to cars and racing. The Throttle Stompers however did have a few notables among their ranks, including Dean Batchelor, Neil Emory, and Bill Faris, mainstays of the nascent So Cal Hot Rod scene. This 1952 shot is from the Pomona Strip, and shows a Throttle Stomper’s car, with the cast metal club plate hanging below the bumper. Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.  Image: Kustomorama
