    Here's what the coupe looked like before the unfortunate accident. The crash was really horrifying to see and I'm just so glad the driver is ok.

    This was the single greatest hot rod event I have ever been to. I brought my dad and my uncle with me. I took my dad down the track in my model a. It was the first time we have ever done anything like this. I then gave the keys to my uncle so he could drive it. Everything went perfectly. Exactly how I imagined it should be. I have waited my whole life to do something like this. Cross a big one off the buck list. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event possible. Thank you thank you thank you

    Peter- I was close. I've been 12.68. But I honestly didn't care. This event was just too much fun.

    That's the way it was in the 60's & earlier. I've forgotten how much fun that was. What a wonderful event...great cars, great weather, great food, inexpensive, well organized, well paced, & most of all, great people.

    I loved the taxi too. Best use of a 53 i have seen. Love guys that cut up rare cars and drag race the hell outta them.
     
  19. That was a drag car in the 50's. It was the eliminator champion in 61. It beat the other gassers than the winning dragster enough times to win the championship that year......
    For sure my favorite car at the track, just amazing....
     
  20. The sixth was great! Got to take my daughter and some friends down the track! How cool is that....We had the flash light drags at night, then the rubber band war with a full moon was crazy....Sorry Hotrod Ed!:cool:

    Steve Crook took his girlfriend (and back up girl), Pam, for ride in his wicked AA/GS Blew By You '56 Chevy. Best run for a door car of the weekend!
