Even the newish cars get freaky sometimes...Jack Wyatt back about 10 years ago.

I know these are newish, and it's gay to post your own cars, but here are a couple of the cars I campaigned and loved and hated and...
My 5 second sbc (yes, Small Block Chevy) powered TAD back in 95 (Alan Hartley's A/ Fueler in the other lane.) Parked this car after NHRA rule changed this combination out of competitiveness (Santos Family scared the livin' shit outta everyone w/ theirs, absolutely DOMINATED the class):
First A/ Fuel car I drove in '99, never wanted to even look @ a blown alcohol car again, definately got me hooked on Nitro racing:
This has been one kick ass thread...keep em comming!
Dawn thanx for HHRR pics,Did you get any from the Sat. Nite Fuel shoot out?
Nitro flames look good at 2 AM.
Royalshifter,that's a photoshop job,right?
One of my favorites
I don't know what the hell it is.....looks very strange.....found it on the net!
This thread belongs in the Hall of Fame (if there is one).
Larry Brown in Bob Dumont's dragster, Tulsa 1972. I remember seeing another pic on the last page of a Hot Rod of this same explosion. Showed a piston and rod coming out the sidewall of the tire. Somewhere around early '90's. Any of you historians know what issue? I'd like to get a copy for Dumont. Same bomb as post #166.
I wonder if anyone has any pics Brown's infamous pirouette at Mile High.
How's Brown doin' these days by the way?
I never knew Larry, but hope he's doing great. I used to work for Dumont at his garage in OKC. Taught me all kinds of good stuff.

The Fidgiter here on the HAMB originally posted this one. It's one of my favorites..
Man what a great thread,brings back alot of memories.
Especially the one of my old 57 ford I won alot of money with that car. THANKS!!!
That Beedy and Lutz car is a familiar face, one of my friends helps crew on it and I've pushed it around a few times. To bad the old man passed away, he never wrote anything down, kept it all in his head. They are still having a time trying to get it to run up to snuff.
