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

  1. The shot of Charlie Allen and the Dutchman in the shutdown area might be the best picture I've seen in a while. I would have payed anything to be around the starting line for that one.

    I thought this looked like the Dover dragstrip snack bar (spent a lot of time there) so I looked it up and yes it is and the pit side stands. Another Branded photo.

    Ouch. Look at where the driver ended up. Scary stuff and a good reason for safety rules.

    This radically chopped deuce coupe with a Willys hood for a nose ran a backwards flathead, intake and exhaust swapped, that's why the headers are pointing up from through the hood.

    Does not matter what side the car he/she was steering from the person is about to become part of the dashboard.

  17. Actually Dave, the blown Ardun Alex ran in the So Cal coupe belonged to Tom Cobbs.

  20. FYI Dave, he didn't own the V8-60 in the So Cal tank either. That was Bobby Meeks' engine.

    Hooley in the "Okie Twister". I painted this car many years ago. Same orange as the Studebaker we ran at Bonneville. There was water on one side of the tire track just ahead of the water box. The car came out of the water box and turned sharply to the right. As bad as this looks, no one was hurt, and there was very minor damage to the car. One of the brackets broke on the fuel tank and there is a small dent at the bottom of the right rear quarter that has never been fixed. A lucky day for everyone. Hooley still races this car.

    I concur!
    If they aren't in motion they should at least have a girl in the shot.

    Thanks for the back story. "Okie Twister"...Looks like the car was aptly named!
