"NASCAR Goes Drag Racing" at Dragway 42, was this held in 1966?
I would guess so.. The copyright date in the book is 1966.
Wow, there are some YUMMY cars in that group! Love the Jimmy blown Model A with whitewalls and the dual McCullough blown Model A. NICE!
I've got the 1966 Hot Rod Showcase coming up next.. Plenty more cars to oogle at!
And that concludes the 1966 Hot Rod Yearbook No. 6..
Next up is "Best Hot Rods" from 1953. Saving the best for last as usual. Hot rod features, Bonneville records, articles such as "How to be a Hot Driver", "Nitro and Bug Juices", "Era of Streamliners", "NHRA - A Progress Report" and more..
I couldn't tell you when I'll be scanning that book but it will be sometime this summer. So keep an eye on this thread.
Wow! Unbelievable! Thanks loads for the trip back in time. And all that without jetlag. BTW, was it just me or did I see a lot of early, "traditional" builds with SBCs in them? Perhaps... a build powered by an SBC can be considered "tradional" afterall. Can't wait to see what's coming...
Check this thread out..
And this is what's going in my Model A.. ('57 283)
Hey guys, I started a separate thread for "Best Hot Rods" from 1953..
Wow, just had a eureka moment! I'm checking out this older thread and see the pages scanned from an old 1965 Hot Rod Showcase, and I recognize that featured coupe. It was used in Art Instruction Schools ads in the 60's. Check it out. The artist obviously just traced it from that magazine.
That's pretty great!! Thank you for sharing that with us!
FARTBUCKET sure screwed up this thread! HRP
Every forum that I am on has suffered from phartbucket's policies. "Use a hosting site, it saves bandwidth!"...... right. How much bandwidth is now crap because of watermarks in this thread alone?
I just now noticed the Photobucket bullshit. What a shame.
I do still have all of the scans on my computer.
If you have them you can go back and repost from your computer but that will take a long time
I have spent a lot of time going back on some of my old threads and replacing photobucket images that I have but sadly some I don't have and there is noting I can do about it but curse fartbucket.
