Among the experts at The AutoSport Nostalgia Forum in 2004, there was near-concensus that these photos—other than the wet Vettes—were not made at Santa Barbara, in spite of the author's having labled them with names containing "... sb...". Likely candidates included Chino A/P and Minter Field, near Bakersfield.

Tom retired to Chama, New Mexico, where he and his wife, Mary, hosted a B&B.
He pursued an interest in steam trains, as well as photography.


 


During a nineteen-nineties cruise of the Internet, in search of material relevant to sports car racing at Torrey Pines, I came across a few pages by A Name I've Forgotten. He had apparently obtained Mr Cardin's digitized photos, and set them free on the Web. All unbeknownst to the author/photographer.

A little more searching led to my finding a way to make contact with Mr Cardin, who was amazed to know his work had been put out there where it could be seen by all and sundry. He very kindly gave me permission to further spread the valuable resources, for "Education, research, and personal use only". And he sent me copies of all he had control over, on CD-ROM.

The images are displayed in pretty much the order I took them off the CD. If there is a better way to see them, I might promote or demote one or another. I'll also add reasonable commentary as it occurs to me. I know I have several more photos from this negotiation. I will add them as they surface.


Here's one for you, if you're really interested in the early development and interpretations of Photos By Cardin: Have a look at an Autosport Nostalgia Forum thread I started in 2004 and had forgotten about.

I keep thinking about the tiny images on the KTUD site, most of which can be shown in larger versions, and all of which I remember seeing as such; however, those that don't currently have big ones to look at could possibly be lost forever. What a disappointment that KTUD's links from the thumbnails are FTPs, and lead nowhere.
