The Bill Boren Photo Collection
In September of 2014, we received an email from Karen Sue Boren. Karen’s dad, Bill Boren, had just passed away, and she was Googling her dad’s old club looking for info and old stories. She stumbled upon the Culver City Screwdrivers page on Kustomrama and decided to reach out. Karen’s first email contained eight photos. Four old black and white photos scanned from old magazines and books, and four photos showing Bill’s club jacket and a couple of trophies. She told me that both her dad and uncle, Jerry Keldrauk, were members of the old club. three days after Bill’s funeral I received another mail from Karen. She told me that they had some old photos they weren’t able to locate, showing at least one of his cars. She promised that she would scan them and send them to me when they found them. One month later I heard back from Karen, she had found the photos and started to scan them. I shared a Dropbox folder with Karen, and the next day photos started to appear. Lots of photos. Two years later, the number of photos Karen has shared counts 1 139! An early hot rod gold mine. Enough material for a book. Unfortunately, many of the original Screwdrivers members are gone by now, and much of the information around these old photos were lost when Bill passed away.
