Default A new idea from Mart. Mart's Real Hot Rods. On Youtube.

I don't know how many of you will remember my old web site. It was called Mart's Real Hot Rods. I posted up many hundreds of pics, many readers rides but a lot of vintage pics that were kindly contributed. It was great at the time but foundered when my web space crashed.

I've just got a new computer so had to trawl through finding all my old pictures from the succession of older machines. I found some of the pics I had posted on my old site. The idea came to me to make these available again by another medium. I have packed 140 odd pics into a video.

I would appreciate your candid opinions. Is this a good idea? should I add music (not sure of the ins and outs of that).

So, for your considered appraisal I offer you the inaugural viewing of part 1 of the Glen Montgomery photo collection. Vintage Hot Rod and Drag pics from the early to Mid 1960s. Some big names there, Garlits, Chrisman, etc. etc.

They might not be primo FordBarn fodder but I have a sneaking suspicion a lot of you guys may have had a mis-spent youth. These sort of rigs might spark a memory.

If you like the format I can put some more together. Please click like and subscribe and leave a comment.

Hi Mart
Liked and commented already on the video. Music can be a nice background but its hard to please everybody. I've done it on a few of my videos but of course if it is copyrighted music Youtube will always warn me. Not a problem as my channel is not monetized.

Thanks guys. It's good to see that batch of pics again.

My big problem is, that while I have a lot of the pics, they were resized back in the day to suit much smaller monitors and don't forget a lot of them were posted in the days of dialup. Small pics of small file size to speed loading. I have another set of the Glen Montgomery pics in the as received condition (big, like the ones just posted) but most of the others are quite small.

I will continue to work on the new venture though, the first offering has received a good number of views. Don't forget none of my videos are monetised, I do this just for the fun of it and the payback is the response from you good people.

Mart.
