    Ok so I love turning right as well as left. I love drag racing, from turn to turn. I love roadracing. Let's post up some pics of some cool HAMB friendly road race cars. Think Ol' Yeller and such.

    Ok...I thought this would be an all out bash but it turned out to be a nice save. :cool:

    I honestly thought this post would get slammed by the "traditional hot rod" guys or deleted for "off topic".

    If you dig through the archives, you'll see that there is a great appreciation for all kinds of stuff that influenced what was built back in the day. There are a few threads that show some bitchin' Ferrari's or Auto Unions. Some of these cars are nothing more than hot rods that turn both right and left as well as drag race from corner to corner.

    It's a picky bunch here.....they slammed me once for posting Mustangs. :(

    The Cunninghams are my favorites! I just don't have any pics.

    Yeah Mustangs and Camaros don't fly. Nor do most of the muscle cars. But a lot of the older race car stuff does. I guess we're fickle like that...
