I have been in love with old cars and hot rods sense I was in high school (1960-63) and had a lot of rides over the years. Some that I enjoyed, 1928 Ford Roadster, 3 Woody Wagons (48, 49 Chevy, 48 Ford), 440 Dodge RT, 56 Chevy Nomad.
- BBC alcohol injected 28 ford altered roadster, NE-1 blowen/injected BBC 200" FM dragster, NE-2 injected BBC FM dragster, 65 Vet BBC D/G coupe, 1929 Ford Roadster Pickup hot rod.
Wish I had those Woody today, it would fatten my retirement account.
In 1975 I started drag racing and have been doing it for the past 35 years, always at the sportsman level just for the fun and the chance to meet some fine people. Both my wife and myself have run our cars over the years. I am 65 years old and have only ran front motor dragsters or altereds all the time. I love the old school type cars with the motor in front.
We live in Bakersfield, CA about 30 min from Famosa drag strip home of the annual "March Meet" and the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion. Its a great place for a old hot rodder to live.
Been retired for 10 years and last year I picked up a basket case 1929 Ford Roadster Pickup and have been working on it with the hope of having it on the road by March 2011. Old guys got to have a project to stay in the game.
