    What is the E/CA class designation?
    I've never seen a six cylinder funny car style altered.
    Although, I did entertain thoughts of building one just for kix once.

    They look like M&H Racemaster's. Maybe 12.00 X 16. Atleast that's what I think the sidewall says, kinda hard to make it out.

    since the ground is pavement i would say drags. i don't think anybody ever paved the sand at the dry lakes.

    I didn't realize from the picture that the surface was paved. Additionally, weren't parts of Muroc (aka Edwards AFB) also paved?
    Thank you for the insight flatheadgary.

    Muroc, don't think so, (any paving). A bit southwest of Edwards proper. Doesn't mean that there is none, just not much anywhere.
    Edwards, yes, many locations. Probably more now than back in 1950.

    Years back a "nostalgia" race was held at Muroc Dry Lake very near where the original races were held. Nothin but dirt for...miles.
    I've got "film" pictures somewhere.

  18. Mike, I was there. Drove down from Portland Oregon with a bunch of guys. That "nostalgia" race was one of the best.

    I have often wonder what happened after this photo was taken? Recovered, ground loop, flipped?

    Put the Stone T in the parking lot and gave it a drink of NITRO. Sounds so sweet and Mikio had a giant smile on his face. Wish I could have downloaded the video while running. PA050224.JPG PA050230.JPG
