    I've seen this a few times before in old pictures, slogans or phrazes painted on the back of drag cars for the loser to read as you go by down the strip. Anyone know or remember any cool ones?
    -Thanks, Dean

    1957 Ford Tudor Sedan with a McCullough Supercharged 312, sponsored by Bill Murdoch Ford in Tulsa. It was running right on the national record in F/SA and as he drove off from me like I was tied to a stump I got to read "It's a FOOORRRDDD"

    :DOn the trunk lid of my stock car back in '89 I had "Just for the fun of it!" lettered on there. Why? Because too many of the guys just lost the focus of racing and having fun. They were a bundle of high strung nerves. Anyway, my 2 cents here tonight.

    There's always the "Urban Ledgend" of the girls drag car that said "If you beat me you can eat me"

    The other that popped up a lot was painted near the mandatory outside shut off switch was "Jerk Off" instaed of "Pull Off"

    There was a Vega drag car driven by an older black gentelman. On the back it said "Ain't bad for a po boy, huh!"
  25. Tough to beat the "Holden Hunting , back in ten seconds"! A lot of race cars in the Northeast had AMF on the back, meaning: Adios mother f---er!

    Just saw it on Speedvision at the wheelie competition at Byron raceway.....car didn't have wheelie bars and shoe polished across the back...."No bitch bars"

    Those guys are nuts....in a good way:D Guy flipped a Chevette completely over on its roof before the 150 ft mark!

    Back when my grandfather was alive and giving out advice on running his Allis-Chalmers he told me not to run the rpm to high when letting the clutch out....start it out low and then move the throttle up as needed, start out to high and I'd "ride the ring". Didn't know what he meant but I found out once when I was out in the field and never did it again.....scared the shit out of me! Pinion climbed up the ring gear faster than the tractor moved forward caused a sky high wheelie and a youngster to shit his pants!

    Not on a car, but on the mirrors of my Ducati I have little OEM-looking stickers that say "Objects in mirror are rapidly getting smaller"
    Punk-rock buddy of mine used to have the slogan "Hippies Hate Water" on the back of his mustang...no reasoning behind it, but it was a true statement.
