    Dan,

    Thanks for sharing. You know that kids got killed back in the day racing around the desert. I guess you don't get to hear about it too often especially when it's first hand documentation and the connection to the families affected. Sorry for the loss.

    Do you remember the polished four-banger Cragar head in the front window of Bell Auto? My dad said it was there on display for years. He ended up buying it. I think they were going out of business and he ended up with it. Wished he still had it.

    it seems most peeps think that only "roadsters" were around in the '30s/'40s , but there were lots of coupes & tudors then also .
    just a thought ! .......... steve

    Yeah but it was roadsters only for the SCTA. Russetta, Mojave, etc... allowed the coupes and sedans to race.

    although i agree that roadsters were the primary car to own/run during the 30's/40's.... Russetta Timing Assoc. allowed coupes and sedans circa late 1940's.. by the time RTA disbanded the SCTA had relaxed its roadsters only rule. Rod Riders is a good example of a club that participated in both associations with a mix of open and enclosed cars...

    29Nash, you are a smart guy... Do not do this. That is the best advice you can get.

  25. Really???? you never heard of him? do a search as others has suggested but to quickly recap Don actually raced in the 1940s in a '41 Hudson 4 door sedan he competed in the R.T.A. In the 50s he drag raced a '32 3w, and drag raced a Willys Gasser in the 60s. Now he publishes Hot Rod History books

    back to regular programing
