Damn I love picture threads. I have been wanting to start a Sprintcar and Midget picture thread for awhile, especially after seeing the "Drag cars in motion" thread! ITS NOT AS FAR OFF TOPIC AS SOME MIGHT THINK... Hot rod styles and technologies came from early race cars. If you have never seen a sprint car up close you would be amazed how similar they are to Hot Rods STILL TO THIS DAY! They still today, have solid axles, Cowl steering, quickchange rears, Hilborn Injected, and are just light weight hotrods! ------------------------- NEW COMERS READ HERE!!!
