Today was a bitter sweet day. We finally finished redoing our dragster "The Antique Doll", but 52 years ago on this day Mickey Brown (the first man to go over 150mph on gas) got killed in our car at Lions Drag Strip when it was originally the Scrima-Adams-Smith dragster. Here is the car in 1959 And here is the car now: Our car is being featured at the Long Beach Motorama at the Lions diorama, so we thought eh we really should go through the car and clean it up. So we told ourselves lets paint the chassis and do a valve job on the engine and THATS IT. Well you guys know how that goes one thing after another we went through the entire car, fixing things that bugged us and also giving the car that certain "look. My dad got the car in 1974 and got it to racing condition. The car went through many changes, and has never really been restored since then, the biggest change was in 2006 when we put a powerglide in the car (we couldn't push start anymore" So here we go, join us on our journey as we work on the "Antique Doll" flathead dragster. Lets start it off with some old pics of the car from the mid- 60's to the mid 70's when the car was part of the UFRA (United Flathead Racing Association) is SO-Cal.
