    Norm Reis, Lick Em and Stick Em. The photo is most likely from Edgewater as Norm was from Cincinnati and Dick's place was his local track.

    I kinda like the front wheel chocks/holders on the trailer, very hi-tech.

    I sure wish the nhra or somebody would bring these cars back! make a class for them, build a safe chassis, limit the horse power to 500 hp, old steel body, and let them run! have something different on the track and let the little guy back in. lets see something else besides the fiberglass bath tubs. ok I will shut up!o_O:cool:
     
  26. I'm with you Mr. Martin.

    Hell, I'd like to see any kind of real amatuer drag racing return. I'm talking modified cars here.
