    Both Dragsters in this picture were built by Dode Martin "Dragmaster Dragster" The other one in the picture is the Potvin blown Mooneyes Dragster. Dode told me that this frame he built for Pete was the lightest frame they ever built, Dode said Pete was obsessesd with weight. 051.jpg

    Hello,

    Nice photo from 1960. The Chizzler was a pretty amazing race car. My brother and I saw it in person in 1959 when they came out West to challenge the “Best of the West” at the Riverside Raceway Dragstrip. The first racecar we saw in the pits was the Chizzler. It was well known to us through reading the Drag News paper every week. It was constantly in the news and setting a record here and there, back in the Midwest/Chicago area.

    During the time trials, they ran it with the nose cone. During some of the eliminations, they took the nose cone off. But the impressive thing were the special, down tube, "zoomie," custom headers. They were one of a kind.

    Then, in June 2017, there was a “newer” Chizzler on display in the Price Transfer Lions Dragstrip Museum main floor. It was right nearby where my Lions films were playing all day and into the early evening.



    The “New Chizzler” is a very popular race car during all of the “Cacklefests” in So Cal.

    The “Cacklefests” are approaching , again, in the warm summer/fall nights. One of the biggest and most unusual is held in Escondido, CA down the City’s main street, Grand Avenue. It is the old town scene with shops lining the street and cool cars cruising down the avenue. Then in the evening, the race cars take over and the show starts…

    Cruising Grand “Nitro Night” in Escondido, CA is on for Sept 28, 2018

  24. The Moonbeam with the chute out. That was a versatile race car. Dean drove it at Bonneville and 1/4 and 1/2 mile drags. I like versatile race cars. ;)
