I was there<G>
Warren Gunter's Durachrome blown Chevy powered VW.
Copied this shot from the Cal Look forum.
Correct me if Im wrong but this is Sox & Martins old Paper Tiger
Maynard Rupp's midengine Chevelle
Exhausting Chevy II
I don't believe Lowell ever took his car to the west coast.
There are several photos of west coast based sidewinders on Don Ewald's site WDIFL.com. There's good search engine at the bottom of the first page.
BTW...Am I the only one who finds it interesting that the largest thread on a traditional hot rod site is all about drag racing? The two were, and will always be, linked together...and that's a good thing. Merry New Year to ALL
Actually the ex Sox & Martin Paper Tiger Too. This was a converted S/S car that they had in addition to the original hardtop style bodied car which was the Paper Tiger.
The body to this car was for sale at Hershey several years ago. Anyone know where it is now?
it was at bowling green a couple years ago as a roller...supposed to be being restored...... brandon
I know it's not to the magic 1 mil. number yet.....But I want to thank all of the guys that have posted photos here!!!! This thread continues to thrill me (and others ). We should also thank all of you that have the body of knowledge that seem answer every question posed on this thread. I look forward to every notification that there is another post to it.......THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!
Happy New Year bigolds.
This thread never ceases to amaze me. Go away for a few hours, come back, and there's two or three more pages. It's like motorcycles on a street-legal night. Run them through once and they go back in the lanes and breed. There's twice as many the next round.
Paper Tiger Too here it is freshly restored at the Hemi reunion
Dude, you are one of the go to guys on this thread!!!! Keep it up!!!! and Thanks!!!
^ Actually the go to guy is right above you. The legendary Mr. Guffey
You...him....KiwiKev...Mazooma...... there are just too many too list!!!!!
WOW these times and speeds seems so slow compared to today's. My stock 1985 motorcycle did 10.50 sec in a quarter mile.
Thanks Mike for posting all these great cars. This was my all time favorite AA/FA.
Not in motion but I thought I'd share more to come.
and one more
Wow that re-entry rail is cool.
As the rollingbones put it " It's not how fast you go, it's how you go fast" wouldn't you rather go back in time to see those cars listed run or go to a recent n.h.r.a. race?
