    Im so sick of people looking at the last page of a thread and throwing up pics of their stupid, modern 55 chevy "gasser" pos and then wanting to debate why it doesn't fit the thread, isn't a gasser, ect. Read and learn. At least someone cares about the fuckn rules. Thank you Gary. Great thread and pics. Rant over.

    That A reminds me of a saying a friend of mine said when viewing like cars.
    "It's got it all, and it's all bad".
     
  7. Thanks for the thread, Gary.
    Keep it going ..We may be educating a few of the clueless here.
     
  8. Back to posting CARS!
    Here's something you don't see everyday/ A HUDSON 6 in an Anglia.
    Anglias were forbidden to run big blocks, but not small engines. This was due to being shorter in wheelbase than the NHRA minimum. This car was a bad ass winner! Ran for years!!!

    Dave Hales (far lane) is ready for this round of C/Gas class eliminations. Dave’s homebuilt ’40 Willys coupe was Chevy powered.

    One of the original S&S team members, Gene Altizer’s career began in both unblown and Supercharged Gassers and lasted through A/FX, early Funny Cars and finally Top Alcohol Funny Cars. Here he takes his A/Gas Anglia through its paces at Cecil County Dragway, Maryland. This car was later run as an A/Gas Supercharged entry withy blown small-block Chevy power.

    Joe Amato shows off the ’40 Chevy B/Gas Supercharged he ranprior to moving into Top Alcohol Funny Car, and then Top Fuel.

    Fred Bear an original S&S team member he’s also an ECDT Hall of Fame member and one of racing’s all-time and best-liked characters. Winter, spring, summer of fall, Freddie Bear swears by his trusty flip-flop sandals! Fred’s supercharged, Chrysler hemi powered Willys is a regular at nostalgia Gasser races

    Bill Boer was a Long Island, NY Street/Modified racer, one of many very good cars that ran out of Jack Merkel’s Long Island shop. Here Boer shares a treasured moment with his greatest fan, his daughter. The tail fin belongs to Boer’s tow car, a ’56 Chevy sedan.

    Tony Feil has long been one of the east coast’s most respected race engine builders and the go-to for many drag racers as well as circle track racers. Feil, an East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame member was also once tough running in Gas Classes. His ’48 Anglia ran in A and B/Gas. Perfect paint, chrome and polished Halibrand magnesium wheels plus outstanding performance heralded Tony Feil Competition Engines.

    Albany, New York’s Don Green enjoys a win with a kiss from the trophy queen at Sanair International Dragway, St. Pie, Quebec, Canada. Green’s E/Gas ’52 Ford “Golden Gasser” was a winner this day.

    Dave Hales career began with this ’55 Chevy 210 sedan. Dave ran the ’55 in D/Gas before building his Willys coupe for C and D/Gas classes. Hales was one of the original S&S Parts Company team members, in Falls Church, Virginia. ’55 had American five-spoke mag wheels rear, steel stock wheels with Moon discs up front.

    Few cars were as consistently successful as Dave Hales’ Willys coupe. Running in both C and D/Gas, Hales collected loads of class win trophies as well as Street Eliminator checks.

    Without question, the amazing 1940 Willys coupe of Charlie Hill was and will likely be the all-time most famous, unblown Gasser ever! Hill’s “Filthy Forty” was deliberately kept in despicable condition to mask its exceptional haul-ass capabilities. Dirt, mud, grease and grunge were forgotten when driver Pork Zartman brought the rev’s up to 8,000 and dropped the clutch! Many times C/Gas National Class champ and class record holder, the Filthy Forty has become true Gasser legend.

  13. At the magazine rack today at Wally World..There it is, right on the cover ..A jacked up Street freak with fake "Gasser" spindle mounts! Guy's name is Gasser Steve or some such thing.
    C'mon, you "retro" magazine guys...Come out of your stupor and cut the crap.
    No wonder our younger enthusiasts don't get this.
    Back to the pictures.

    I like the stuff with a Northwest connection! Emailed this photo to a Washington Willys Whisperer friend of mine. Happy to say this car survives and lives in the Bremerton area.
