my first time posting a pic, took a coupla tries and screw ups but here goes. Happened across this pic while looking thru a bunch of old pics and thought this pic would be a good picture example of a street roadster that went drag racing in 1956. Pic was taken in the pits at the 1956 NHRA National Championship Drag Races (aka Olympics of Drag Racing ) in Kansas City, Mo. The roadster is very representative of the typical mid west street roadster at that time. Not a show piece, functional, stripped down and hot rod from one end to the other. How many of the features of the car do we see in rods of today? Look closely. What you don't see are the hiccups and bolt on trinkets that are on SOME rods of today. They had it right back then and still do. I have more old pics, will post them now and then. For the curious and eagle eyes, check out the roadster in the background, parked in front of the tent. My next post will be a pic of that rod. Any one recognize it? It was from Illinois, owner or sponsor was a used car dealer. Any guesses? Now I am going to take the necessary steps to attach the pic, fingers crossed, hit the button. Did it?
