History Drag cars in motion.......picture thread.

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by Royalshifter, Dec 12, 2007.

  1. As far as I know, the rules only ever called for fenders on all 4 tires. It never specified what type. Aero was not a big concern at the speeds we were running in the 60's. The advantage the cycle fendered cars had was the fenders were lighter, and they could use class weight on the rear for ballast. My car was 100% steel Ford, and still needed 80lbs of steel plate in the bed to make class with 301 cu in. I never even considered anything but the stock fenders.

    Charles' Galaxie back in '67 I believe at Green Valley Raceway, he's a local guy that runs a machine shop in Arlington, TX. He still has a Thunderbolt he races.

    No, if I make it back up to his shop I'll see if I can get some. It's a little more modern, I believe he is running weld racing drag lites on it. Still a cool car, oh and it's a 4 speed car I've never seen the car in person, just pictures.
