Most of the gasser guys were pretty young when they were building and driving gassers. A few stayed with drag racing and moved on to the evolving classes, while others quit to go to college and do other things. Gene Altizer of S&S fame went back to college, as did Cook of Stone Woods and Cook, and Porky Zartman driver of the Filthy Forty Willys.
I raced a '55 Chevy gasser around 1970 when they were at the tail end, and like many other gasser owners I drove our car to the strip and back home. (if they didn't break!)
I'm building an Austin gasser clone for the street now. Just got it driveable, but it's still got a ways to go to look finished. Probably run it all spring and summer, then break it down for bodywork and paint in the fall.

327 Chevy:

Some of us can't give up on the Gasser's

Even Vega's make good "budget minded" 60's style gassers

Pronounced like Zeus. Maybe a little harder sound on the "z". Designed by William Dzus.

Are you certain that the copyright term has not expired? What is the publication date? Was it published with notice? Was the copyright renewed? See: http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm . Thanks.
Don't even go there. I own all of the negatives from my father, Joe Stevens, Photographic Collection's and my father did copyright his photographic work and I now own it. I also have the Intellectual Property & Traditional Knowledge as passed down from my father, who was a Professional Photographer that the ownership of the negative does in fact represent ownership of the image. These and many other photograph's like these have been sold on photographic paper to customers and many have been published. However, that does in no way make the assumption that the actual image, the negative, ownership of the image, has been sold to reproduce or share and therefore cannot be be used on your website. I am sorry. But those who would car to see original image's can go to their perspective location at the *************.com website.

Well, I find that hard to believe since these negatives have been stored for several years but it's possible that somebody had copies of these because afterall, they probably were sold to the original owner of the car. The story they told you about getting them from a person's brother, however, was not true because my father's brothers live a long way from California and have nothing to do with the photography business. The one statement that I can say is true is that they were taken a long time ago and I do appreciate your quest for knowledge about these photograph's. I can tell you that it was taken in 1960 by Professional Sports Photographer, Joe Stevens and I will provide the names of the people in the photograph's under the original photo that is in the ***********.com website which is where the photo's are watermarked. Also that the clone of this car has already been produced and was on exhibit at the Woodward Cruise in Detroit in 2010 but has very few of the original parts. And just an added note: Just because somebody gives you a photograph, it is still your responsibility to try and inquire as to the origin of the photo and whether or not it is for you to publish for others to make copies of. Please know that I am not trying to make you feel bad. It was a simple mistake and lack of communication or actually, it is the webmaster of this web site's responsibility to know whether or not to publish certain photo's without atleast checking the internet to see who they belong too. So please don't let this one little mishap discouage you. I am very proud of my father and proud of his life's work. I just want to make sure that he get's his proper credit for it. He worked very hard in his lifetime, weekends, and long hours without any complaints because he loved what he did & was a kind and giving man. I am just trying to carry on his legacy with what he has left for me.
Cordially,
Patrice

Your father worked with a Larry I believe, I'm from that area and remember these people I'll have to look for my copies, haven't seen them in a couple of years sold the cabinet they were in so no telling where they are right now, I said brother but should have said cousin my mistake.
My intent on posting those so many years ago was to recall the names of the people in the picture, look at the date that was 2004, how long has your website been up?
Just trying to say no intent was made to cut you short on these.
You take care, Okay my wife remembered where I put the stuff from the cabinet, helps when you get to be my age, but there are no stamps on mine I guess the mind was playing tricks on me.

You're flat wrong. See Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

I would be extraordinarily cautious about mis-quoting the law, or publicly accusing others of breaking the law, when they are not. Because that is illegal. I suggest you contact your lawyer immediately.

BTW, copyright does not last forever. Eventually, everything falls into the public domain.

The photograph is nearly 50 years old. I ask again: Have you renewed the copyright, or not?

I assume you mean the front fenders? They are Dzus fasteners that hold the front end closed when it's not tilted. I split the fenders to make the tilt frontend because the lower fenders curve into the body and would make rub marks on the doors when tilting it open.

I see now, At first it looked like they were on a fan shroud. Is that realy a 327? Don't see a lot of 327's built that far. Bad A--!

Yep, it's a 327 from a 1967 Chevelle, bored .040", with 2.02" fueler heads, balanced, blueprinted, a bit of a cam, and the Holley intake and dual 450's.

Got any ideas on paint color yet? I'm kind of partial to 1971 AMC electric blue.
I had a 71 Javelin and it just doesn't get any more blue than that. It actually turns purple under white florescent light.

Do we need to start collecting money now?

Color??? I'm a long way from paint or choosing colors. I'll be enjoying it all summer and decide if I even want to paint this fall.
