in the name of leather

hi, what’s your name?

I don’t remember who the dark hair guy is, but the blond used the name Walt Ford, when he was a model for Colt. I remember he used a different name for this layout. He looks worn and beefy here, but when he was younger, he was absolutely stunning. I guess when he got older, he also got kinkier. I remember a picture of him with a nose ring, used in a leather magazine. It may have been Drummer. He later died of A.I.D.S. I wish I could find a picture of him, in his prime. He was beautiful!

I’ve mentioned him before…

ahhhh, yes! and at the time, I did a little bit of research, and came up with 2 or 3 photos, but never published! – Here’s a bit, but more later, I hope.

Thanks BJ! Good job! I’m certain the second picture isn’t him. He was never that tall or ripped. The first one is though. But it’s still an older picture, where he’s too sun-baked. There are pictures of him when he was in his twenties, where he looked so boyish, ripe and fresh. His hair was shinier and full. They used one picture for his obituary, in I believe, Frontiers magazine, or some other free fag-rag. I hope you can find these pictures. Good Luck!

a bit more, from COLT STUDIO PRESENTS 8: The Great Duals (don’t know the year) – seems to be only publication I can find him in….

Thanks BJ! See, I told you he posed with Dinakos! He looks a lot better here, than in the picture you posted above. His faces isn’t toasted and lined, and his hair isn’t flat and dry. I wish you could see the youthful, glamour shot, that I mentioned before. He’s bare-chested, with a playful, surprised expression, and a smiling, open mouth grin. He looks so cute and adorable! There was a Tumblr site, posted online a few years ago, that showed each of the Colt models’ pictures, listed in alphabetical order. They even included the advertising photos and action shots. It was incredible! They were posting pictures, almost daily. They had pictures that were no longer in circulation, and were probably lost. Unknown models were included. I only wished, they could have finished. They only got about half way. Eventually, they may have been able, to post every single Colt picture ever! I knew from day one, that they would eventually be shut down. No doubt, Manfred Speer, must have been responsible, if not directly. He’s shut down other blogs, with unauthorized Colt photos. I wanted to tell you about, but I figured it was best to keep it secret, for as long as possible. At least, Walt Ford’s pictures, were included.

Thanks again! Keep it up! The posting, I mean. ; )

Hey BJ,

tahnk you for all those detailled info´s.
Can you try to find any background about the video/videos called NYC Muscle Hidden Camera?
It was recorded private in the early 90s and got at leat one actor of the Fox Studio in it.

I see that you’ve already discovered this website:

Anyway, I found the Drummer Magazine, where he’s on the cover with a nose ring. Oy! He looks pretty rough! It’s issue #96:

I haven’t responded lately, because I’m just too busy from work. You’ve posted a lot of good material recently. I wish I could comment on every single post. I may try to catch up, during my vacation. I appreciate that you make late responding, possible. ; )

I want to thank “Anonymous” for identifying Joe Falco.

As they say, when one door closes, another one opens! : ( : )

As I said before, I lament that most gay porn magazines, because of the internet, have closed down. They’ve gone the way of the dinosaur. Yet it’s actually the internet, that’s keeping their legacy alive!

It’s amazing that I’ve discovered so many vintage publications and photos online, that I thought for certain, would be lost forever! : / : 0

Tumblr for the most part, has closed down, but we now have limited access, with Tumbex!

Aside from your wonderful blog, we also have others like Retro Studs, Collectors Realm 3 (I hope they come back online as they promised!), Vint70s-Lvr, Welcome to My World, etc.

GEVI and Smut Junkies are always updating! Even Colt Studio Group, have started to add models that were previously unheralded, like Jim Cassidy, Hog Chopper, Blue Blake and Walt Ford. Wow!

Anyway, I found out that your opening photo was from a publication called, “Garage Sex”.

Buck Naked has been on fire lately! I’m actually hopeful that “Garage Sex”, will eventually finds its way onto Retro Studs.

Earlier this year, Retro Studs posted a number of photos from “COLT STUDIO PRESENTS 10: Men at Work” – lots of glorious studs! But unfortunately, it was taken down! I wonder if Manfred Speer had anything to do with this! : ( : /

You know I always love to share with you! In this publication, there were hot photos of Leo Hooks, Walt Ford, and Justin Cade, barely dressed as construction workers – so cute!

Anyway, I know that you also love Smut Junkies, as do I. Lately, they’ve also been on fire – lots of great additions and updating!

Don’t quote me, but I believe that the owner was the editor/publisher, of “Savage Male Magazine (1993 – 1997?)” – From one medium to another. : )

I’m still mad though, that they still haven’t added Jim Cassidy to Smut Junkies! He was hardly a second tier porn star – unforgivable!

But as usual, I digress…

Here’s an updated profile of Joe Falco. If you scroll all the way down, you can view the cover of “Garage Sex”.

Now here’s a pretty recent addition of Walt Ford! Now this REALLY amazes me!

I would have never expected this, in a million years!

Now Walt Ford WAS a second tier porn model. When his posed for Zeus Studios, he used the name Cord Briggs. Who knew?

Be sure to scroll all the way down! At his best, he was absolutely adorable! : )

Now that I think about it, do you think that Walt Ford and Joe Falco, were an item? Both of them really seem to be into S & M – leather.

Falco had pierced nipples. At one time, Ford had a nose ring! Ouch! Yuck!

Both of them were featured in “Drummer Magazine”.

If I ever find more pictures of hottie, Walt Ford, you can bet that I’ll come back to this post!

As will be the case with so many others of your posts, featuring hot vintage stars – show and tell!

So until then, let’s both keep our fingers crossed! : )

; )
