Hello from Auburn, Washington. I stumbled across this site while trying to find information about Drag Racing in the Pacific Northwest in the 50',60's, and 70's and looking for some info on a few specific cars. I graduated high school in 1988 driving a 40 Chevy Coupe with a 383 small block that my dad, uncle, best friend and I swapped from stock. Currently I have a 40 Chevy Coupe waiting for a total restore as I sold my first one when I left for college. I really loved reading all the information posted from people about this area. Growing up one of my favorite thingswas to look at dads old magazines and Butch Thuey's 55. I briefly owned a 1951 Chevy gasser that was traced back to ballard and a picture on the hall in Bardahl's. When I bought it, It was painted red, white, and blue with stars. It also had ArtBrass Plating and Mr Sudsy painted on the trunk. I do not remember the owners name, but I did contact him and he brought a photo album including pics from an Auto Rama show in Seattle. It was beautiful and had deteriorated baaad. It was bad enough to bring a tear to his eye. I also remember a yellow 37 Coupe with aone piece front end named Tweety Bird and a 38 Chevy Coupe that was street driven, but the body lifted like a funny car.
