    That wasn't good stuff. Those were just junky old cars at the time. No wonder so many old guys had false teeth and bad body parts.

    Very cool... like early SCORE racing! I dig the shortened wheelbase, wheelie pulling "kid's entertainment"...

  7. Geeez that's some crazy shit! Like a mix of Moto-cross and dirt track racing. At least they had some roll "hoops". I wonder if all the women from Busti, NY are nice and............oh well, it was just a thought.

    Heck the guy in the 33-34 Phaeton (A PHAETON) isn't even wearing goggles, much less a helmet or roll bar.

    I thought that WAS him!

    Evidently, there were a lot of Scandanavians in that part of the country back then. And it looks like no one had ever heard of the Baja penninsula, either. Gary

    That's proof that Hot Irons were everywhere!!!!
    Those guys had some choice steel going there!!!!
    It was mentioned above about MX racing. That's exactly what I got out of it as well. Took me back to the days when we'd drag our sorry selves back home all muddy with ache's/pains and go right back out and do it again.
    Skateboarding was the same way.

    Zach, your car definitely lives back in 1939!!!!!!!

    HAH! THAT MUSIC!

    Aside from that, that race looked AWESOME. I think I spied at least one Coupester, but what looked even more notable to me as far as how some of the guys built, was the Phaetons, I think at least one was a Tudor with the roof cut off.
     
  17. So, it does seem that wheelie cars were nothing new. I think anyone anywhere with a couple bangers and some open space was doing this back in the day :)

    And those were the cars that passed the tech inspection!
    :). I love the innocence and enthusiasm of those days.

    What I found interesting, is that early, fenderless Fords were already the dominant hot rod by 1939.

    If that was 1939, then those 9-N Ford tractors in the background would have been brand new!

    I can't believe it took that long for one of the doors to fly open.

    I'm pretty sure my car was there. It would explain a lot!
