    Hey Gary,
    This dragster was a very unusual SBC powered racer at Lions in 1959-60. It had the most intricate drive line for a racer. Many people would stop and stare for a long while in the pits. When this racer came up to the line at Lions, people watched just because it was a weird race car. It was innovative for the times, but strange looking. Plus, it was very shiny...

    Jnaki
    It is one of those old drag race cars that goes unnamed or credit given to the builder/driver. It is still a mystery to my list of names for my old drag racing films. Anyone?


    To add fuel to the fire, we all imagined a full streamlined body (plus a 671) on this drag car and that would have brought people to their feet.

    Classic Pasadena homes in the background...some survive, though most were bulldozed to make apartments.

    Hadn't thought of Dick DeBolt in years. Shot looks like it was probably taken at Eldora.
