    Hellacious tire smoke indicates that the Frye brothers’ twin Buicks took an immediate liking to “liquid horsepower” at Indy, though we wonder how long their nailheads survived after the shutter was snapped. The crowd-pleasing combination failed to qualify for a Top Fuel field ultimately topped by Don Garlits.

    Doug, he was not paying attention and responded positively when I sent him a PM informing him about the error of his ways. Typical of people jumping into Facebook threads and looking stupid because of not scrolling up and seeing earlier posts, I think that some people (RustyL for instance) are just not taking the time to see what this thread is really all about and jivin jer has just been a bit too casual about checking his stuff before posting. I don't think that the moderators will close the thread if we keep making the effort to set these guys straight and keep the thread as pure as possible.

  16. Not too swift there.
    It isn't about me, it's about keeping the thread alive.
    But ya know, it isn't worth it.
    So GOODBYE, it was fun while it lasted, but it isn't anymore.

    Gary, your input is much too important for you to quit now. You are after all under contract to provide photos on a regular hourly basis. Really don't get upset about this just carry on your involvement is too important and I for one appreciate the efforts.

    Gary, If I said purdy please would you stay and play.
    We will get this, a bump in the road every now and then is going to happen, like Roo said, it's just the nature of the beast.
    People arrive here in various forms of transportation. Some, a flash in the pan, others become well established and hopefully "get it".
    I won't believe this is something the staff finds grounds to close such a popular thread, but we still need to "police our own".

    Gary....we need you here and we appreciate your hard work.
    Don't let my bitching bug you.
    Stick around, I know I will. This is a great thread and a great group. Let's stick together and keep it alive.
    I'm not going away, that's for sure. I love this stuff and like Roo said, there wasn't anything deliberate.
    I make mistakes every day but Life's still fun and so is old time drag racing.
    I'm sure as hell not going to watch the "evening news". Nobody wants to see that crap.
    :)
     
  22. No dice kids! I'll be at the Days Gone By thread. I'll save my drag pics for myself, this is just not worth the effort. Douchebag posters just will not stop, they know the deal, they just don't care. I'm very sick of being cast as some bad guy because I wanted to keep the thread real, not surrender to kids that weren't there and don't get it or care.
    thanks for the kind words, but it really has gotten to be a huge bore. Carry on guys!

    Trying again :confused:

    Chris “The Greek” Karamesines is strapped into his fuel dragster, which is sitting atop the in-ground rollers. US 30 strip.

    :(curses foiled again snidley who knew that rollers were still in use in the 70's

    Here, a single-engine dragster is facing off against Norbert Locke’s twin-flathead– powered dragster at Oswego.

    Lyons, one is Chris “The Greek” Karamesines

    Pat Bilbow made a big impact on the regional drag racing scene by developing a “store bought” dragster chassis, built in his shop, Lyndwood Welding, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. These new dragster frames, known as the Eliminator, were a huge hit in the Northeast, giving racers an alternative to the homemade dragsters of the era.

    Al Maynard (1957 Chevy) and Harry Luzader (1932 Ford) staged this classic battle for Nationals E/Gas class honors. Despite Maynard's holeshot, Luzader took the win. Both cars featured a Hilborn-injected small-block and a four-speed transmission.

    Local run-offs for class trophies were always hotly contested. Here Dave Boyd (right) faces Larry Crawford (far lane) for B/Gas trophy at Miami's Masters Field in 1964. Boyd's 1934 Ford five-window had a Chevy, while Crawford's 1934 three-window used a 389 Pontiac.

    Toledo, Ohio's Dick Titsworth ran this clean 1948 Anglia in the 1960s, first as a Gasser and sometimes as an Altered. His Seaport Automotive was a northern Ohio force for race engines and machine work. He later ran alcohol Funny Cars with equal success.

    South Jersey-based Seabrook Farms is a major frozen foods supplier. Owner Charlie Seabrook's weekend hobby was this E/A powered by an Aston-Martin DOHC DB-6 engine. Since the car was originally motivated by a GMC 6, Charlie kept the Jersey Jimmy name. Seabrook won class at the Nationals and set E/A records. He's seen here at Maple Grove, Pennsylvania, in 1975.

  30. Some of the guys on my thread were hinting this was my dad in Jim Miles the Magic Muffler car[​IMG] on my thread. I wasn't to sure about that My dad told me he did a wheely in a race car one time with no details so I thought he was kidding around because I never seen a pic of it. Well I zoomed in and saw the purple helmet and showed my mom the pic tonight she said oh yeah thats him and confirmed it.. That is crazy what a pic is all I can say !,
