Event Coverage An Inland Emperor's view of the 2010 California Hot Rod Reunion

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Payne, Oct 18, 2010.

  1. I thought I'd share my photos from the 2010 California Hot Rod Reunion in Bakersfield. I spent most of my weekend helping crew on Jason Rupert's Mert Littlefied Tribute nostalgia funny car. We had a great weekend with the car, running in the five's all weekend, qualifying No. 2 out of 37 cars with a 5.80, and setting the funny car top speed with a 250 mph run in our first round loss on Saturday afternoon.

    Few shots of the funny car I helped crew on

    Very nice, thanks for posting...the nostalgia funny cars are just one of the great things that nostalgia racing has brought back....who would have thought that these cars that many of us remember would be back racing decades later....

    I love nostalgia funnies, but I'm sorry, those pinched, wedged, long nosed Camaros and Firebirds, or any other bodies done that way, do not look the part; shouldn't be allowed to run with the real nostalgia cars. They're more like a modern pro mod.

  9. It's was great to see you too, I hope you had a ton of fun. Judging by my hangover on Sunday, I know I did! You're definitely right about there being a lot of work to run a nitro funny car, five hours of work for five seconds of fun. I guess it's a good thing that I like my race cars like I like my women, high maintenance!:D
