    Group -

    Here's an "interesting" interview of early days drag racing chassis builder, Scotty Fenn, done by Terry Cook for "Drag World". I promised Ryan, quite a while back, that I would put it up here and am just now getting around to it. I can't seem to grasp the concept of posting anything but the small photos here, so I hope these pages are readable. If not, perhaps one of you computer hip persons can upsize them.

    I don't know any more than you what the real truth about the guy is. I do know that over the years there has been lots of bench racing scuttlebut to the effect that he was a stubborn old bastard - very much sold on his own ideas, and not all that willing to consider any others. Some thought he was just plain nuts.

    There's no question that he held some "unique" ideas, and had his personal quirks. Still, his Chassis Research company was one of , if not THE, first outfits to offer a genuine "pro-built" dragster chassis to the masses. Many of them were the foundation of winning diggers - and definately provided a comparitively high degree of safety for the ordinary racer at an affordable price.

    You can make your own decisions about Fenn's mental state (take a close look at the photo of him on the beginning page, for starters - LOL), but one thing's for sure. He believed in what he was doing.
