The Fred Larsen Photo Collection
Fred Larsen was a pioneer hot rodder, dry lakes racer and drag racer. Born in Oak Park, Illinois, Fred grew up in Culver City, California. In 1936 he attended his first dry lakes meet, as a spectator at the Muroc dry lakes. Two years later he returned with his first hot rod, a 1925 Ford Model T roadster. Fred went on to become a lifetime member of the 300-MPH chapter of the Bonneville 200-MPH Club, and the holder of multiple World Land Speed Records for streamlined vehicles set at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Thanks to Fred's wife Marylou Larsen and Karen Boren, daughter of fellow Culver City Screwdrivers member Bill Boren, Fred's photo collection has found its way to Kustomrama so we all can enjoy it.
