    I've been a hot-rodder since I bought my first Model A in 1954. Feel a kinship with traditional hot rodders 'cause I used to be one (265 sbc powered '37 Ford Vicky). Raced Gas classes thru the late 50's and early 60's (the Vicky in D/G, and a 283 powered '38 Chevy Coupe in C/Gas [runner-up at AHRA Nationals in '61]. Began racing Altered roadsters in '64. Started running nitromethane in '65. Won AHRA national championship in A/Fuel Altered in 1968. Still running an altered roadster on nitro in the 21st century. Now organize and run in traditional drag race events with members of the Texas Timing Association and other people with old school original style hot rods and drag race cars. I just don't understand what bracket racing, delay boxes, putting on the brakes at the finish line to keep from 'breaking out', late model front-wheel-drive door cars, and rear engined dragsters really have to do with drag racing, anyway. Yee-haw!
