    Yep that one was new to me too but with the hood scoops I thought it probably was.

    I think we are seeing photos of race cars from different sanctioning bodies. What I recall of the NHRA M/P rules for instance from the 60's and early 70's is that you were not allowed to radius the wheel wells, you could not remove bumpers, no fibreglass (except hood scoop) and factory interiors were required. The gasser rules were much more liberal. The primary difference between stock and M/P had to do with motor modifications but they had to be from the same manufacturer as the body builder and carburetors were required. No FI or blowers. The Corvettes ran in M/SP with similar regulations. Just curious about some of these photos as I see cars competing in M/P that look more like /G class cars.

    My 65 Comet ran M/stock formula 1,2,3 depending on carb set up in AHRA. Same car one hour away at an NHRA track ran E/MP. I had no chance so I stuck with Motor City dragway and AHRA.
    AHRA had stock optional classes that allowed headers and slicks and traction bars. NHRA would try to stick guys in M/P instead of stock eliminator. I miss the variety of the AHRA.

    I all ways thought the NHRA made a big mistake ending Modified Production because they drove many drag racers away from the NHRA with that one single move. Many racers never bothered coming back once that happened.

    When you have something that was that successful why would you ever even consider changing it?

    For sure then you could recognize the cars for what they were but they sure did FLY.

    How much money do you have?
    How much money does NHRA have?

    They must be right, right?

    ^^^In a big sense you have a point but remember that the NHRA has done (and does) what it considers
    the best for the organization, not really considering the true effect it has on the backbone of the sport.

    I guess my sarcasm wasn't obvious enough.
    The whole premise of the NHRA was to make drag racing a safe sport for young people. That got lost along the way. I wouldn't expect everyone to work for nothing but it's ALL about the money now and has been for some time.
