    ....drag duty.

    EDIT: IT IS !!
    ".....hand-chosen by NHRA founder Wally Parks to compete for FIA International Acceleration Records at March Air Force Base in Riverside, Calif., in 1958. It clocked 168.85 mph in the standing kilometer with an unblown 302-cid small-block Chevy."

    Holy smokes.

    cool stuff. I fear in the future there will not be any old photos of current shows and races since few people make prints and there are no negatives. I have had photos on CD fail after several years. they are gone forever, I had a computer crash a few years ago and just by luck I was able to get my many thousands of photos off the computer after it stopped working right.

    Simply Iconic.
    Some of the finest photos I have ever seen taken at Bonneville....
    What a photo record to be left for future generations.
     
  19. I sure do love that Yeakel Brothers roadster.

    Great stuff @Jive-Bomber!

    Does anybody have any information on this roadster??? This image is priceless.

    Who is releasing these images @Jive-Bomber? Are prints going to be available for the general public?

    Treasure trove of pics. Hard to pick a favorite, but the Glass Slipper has to be near the top. Thanks for sharing and can't wait for the next patch.
