Clifford Ambrose of Santa Clara, California was a member of the San Jose Igniters car club. Cliff was very active back in the late 1950s building and racing hot rods. Lucky for us he brought a camera and documented some of the action. Unfortunately, Cliff passed away in 1998, but his son Matt has shared his dad's old photos with Kustomrama. The photos were taken circa 1958 - 1959. Some are from Bakersfield Raceway, while others were taken at his home in Santa Clara.
