Default "Tudor On A Tear"



This one is out of the March, 1963 issue of Hot Rod Magazine. If you know the car, it's most likely because you stumbled across it while checking out the feature on "L...

Tony’s sedan proved some serious double duty capabilities. Well, actually triple duty - Tony’s car is streetable! Even so, it’s amazing to see two cars built a half decade apart with very different parts share such a similar personality. The generation gap ain’t all that big - is it?


people are constantly telling me "I" cant build a competative car for double duty, (lakes & drag racing), but people throughout the decades have been doing it. even if it may only see drag duties once in awhile, its still possible.



The Bill Ramay/Gary Ewens 34 sedan hands down has the best looks ive seen for a 33/34 sedan thus far.

I've got that old issue of Hot Rod too.

I love the chain blower drive, just TRY getting that on any track these days. The chop is great, as is the "RTA" on the back of the car.

Geez, I wish my car would a pull single duty. All it ever does is sit in the garage on stands, yelling at me because I don't have clue as to what I am doing to it!

P.S. What's "RTA"?

Makes me think it was a 1970-72ish issue of Hot Rod or RnC with coverage of the Antique Drags that they did with lots of bangers and flatheads in southern Cal.

Russetta Timing Association

They allowed coupes (well, all closed body styles) when SCTA would only allow roadsters.

I'd like to find some like that and adapt them to my 94s. Probably too rare and valuable.

Wasn't the Pierson Brothers coupe an LSR and drag car?

i guess it would take a lot of thought, planning and careful engineering. the suspension of a drag car would probably work fairly well on an lsr car.

That first photo is one of the coolest pictures I think I've ever seen. Normally I don't like the track noses but that's killer.

So-Cal coupe was - not the Pierson Bros. car. There were plenty of cars built for LSR and drag racing. But I think since each has been more refined it has become harder to build a car that can do both competitively.
