If so, how often? I was big into drag racing in the 70's. Had a couple 10 second door slammers back then. Time and money always prevented me from getting back into it. That, and a lot of drag strips got closed down so no where to race. There is a drag strip about an hour from me now and have been thinking about going to have some fun. I plan on taking my '34 on a long around the country road trip next summer so prepping the car for that. It is a glass car with a little Buick 231, T-350 and a Corvette rear. It's got a/c and a fancy stereo. Four bar front with disk brakes. Your standard street rod type car that was built in 1988 by probably a pro shop as everything is done pretty nicely but in that 80's/90's smoothy style. It gets decent gas mileage and is pretty comfortable for what it is. Perfect for the road trip. But.....it's a glass car and (other than Corvettes) the only glass car I've ever owned. To me, it's not really an old car and is really a 1988 car that looks like an old car. I know it will be fun driving it on the trip but I feel like I'm cheating a bit. I am building my '63&1/2 Galaxie with a 390 / T-10 and am thinking I'd like to use that car for future road trips. Full size car with tons of room and a nice smooth ride. I'll swap out the T-10 for a 5 or 6 speed for better gas mileage. Taking that car will let me get a true old car road trip experience. So what to do with my '34? Make a drag car (well, more like a street / strip car) out of it! Yank the fenders, ditch the 231, T350 and Vette rear and all the billet street roddy stuff and drop in a big inch blower motor and a 9" or maybe even a quick change. I'd really like a 392 or a 425/401 NailHead or maybe even an FE so I can share parts with the Galaxie (like the T-10). Blower would be cool but budget might dictate a tunnel ram or something less wild. The car would be fairly light so wouldn't need a ton of power and that helps keep breakage down too. I know a crate SBC would be the cheapest and easiest way to go but sure would like to run something different. Let's see your drag racing hot rods! How has it been for you? How often do you get out there? Brake a lot of parts? How fast do you go?
