The damage was scratching, but even more it was the principal of the thing , Dad paid hard earned money for the car and it was disrespectful for you to park your ass on it.
They really looked better cut up.
First time I've seen dual fatties, awesome.
Nice post on the Dragmaster "Two Thing." It was a very unusual twin motor set up in those early days. The extra wide Dragmaster designed chassis and the twin, front mounted 671 blowers. The top "Two Motor" FEDs were Muddersbach, Howard Cam Twin, Freight Train, Eddie Hill, Tommy Ivo, etc. The creation of this twin from Carlsbad, CA was probably to keep up with the competition for those top eliminator wins.
In 2017, I stumbled upon the Dragmaster "Two Thing" on the floor of the Price Transfer Lions Dragstrip Museum main floor in all its glory. It was nice that the participants were able to have dinner and talk, while immersed in the pristine drag racing vehicles spread all over the floor.
As far as the sound of this Two Thing racing:
Just double the sound of the original Dragmaster single SBC filmed in 1959 at Lions Dragstrip.
I really like the 2nd photo, getting it done at a such a young age,2 thumbs up.
AMEN to that.
Jazzy Nelson. I saw it run at Half Moon Bay when I was a teenager.
Those skate board wheels are pretty modern. Its made to look vintage but its not
Dont care , cool post.... not bitching just commenting
Yep,46 willys that had been customized. Dodge tube axle, Henry J engine fun ride.
I agree with 31Dodger except it's not "cut down", it's "dressed up"! Doors added, the rear wheel wells partly enclosed, and maybe the top of the rear body enclosed as well. You got any more pictures showing the other modifications? This would make a cool model!
ETA You posted while I was typing, so... any more photos?
Gruene, Texas pronounced "Green"
I heard lot about the principal of the thing when I was a kid and I feel most of it sank in. I wouldn't even think of parking my ass on my Dads or any car, then or now. I came pretty close to getting my ass beat one time for putting my feet on the dash of our 58 Buick with my shoes on. My kids grew up knowing if they screwed up they would pay the price, most of the time it just took a yell or "the look"
