Kay Kimes Death

It is with a heavy heart that we send along with the sad news that Hot Rod Pioneer and long-time AHRF supporter, Kay Kimes, has passed on at the age of 93. One of the few remaining “original 49’ers”, Kay was involved in hot rodding from a very young age as can be seen by our first image up. that’s Kay crouched down at the front wheel of a real-deal jalopy in the mid-1940s taking his first hot rod a banger-powered T roadster to run at El Mirage in 1947.

He went on to become an SCTA board member, race in the first “Bonneville” in 1949 with a small group of daredevils, and have a varied career that included everything from wrenching on track roadsters to crewing for Art Arfons and assisting Jim Deist in the development of his race-application parachutes.
