And one more
Thank you Gary for posting all the great pics! I think we were very lucky to be born in that time period. And thanks to all others posting pics of American cars. Anyone who pms or posts negative comments should be ousted.
A couple of hot rodders drag racing their full body coupes / sedans. Just another couple of Gassers. But these two racers did not know that, did not know about the Gasser class, because it had not been invented yet. This race above was at the Santa Barbara Airport, in Goleta, California, in either 1948 or 1949. The spectators in this photo are some of the very first people that ever witnessed a scheduled drag race. This is Ground Zero when it comes to attending a drag racing event...
Posting negative or positive comments is what a forum is all about. Everybody has different opinions about the same subject.
If there is no comments at all the forum will die a slow death.
Hateful PM's directed to another member shouldn't be tolerated though [there is no room for Hatred here at all]
I doubt if anybody has sent any hate messages here directly to any member. Even Gary hasn't made such a claim. He said "You'd be surprised at the hate mail I get. I don't get it."
If I am wrong, I am sure Gary will chime in.
The truth is, you'd be surprised at the hate mail I get [the surprise is I get none]
So lets stop being "Drama Queens" and start posting photos
Here's another pic to keep things on track.

edit: The Model A roadster pickup is the backbone of Kiwi Hotrods. There were lots of them in NZ because of our farming economy.
OK look, PLEASE STOP DISCUSSING ME!
It's out of hand, no need for this.
I really think it's enough. OK?
Here’s an old photo of an F.E.D known as “The Undertaker “. Anybody know the history?

gary, just keep it up, i love all you post,
This is the first thing I look at every evening !
Gary,I enjoy and appreciate all the stuff that you and others post. Thank You!
post the messages so the members can be called out for their cowardly b/s and maybe Ryan will whip out the ban hammer..... allowing them to remain anonymous only impowers them to keep doing the same crap.... FYI the last line was a bit harsh since a vast majority appreciate what you do here
I am late to this party but maybe it was a movie set???
Probably around the time of the big flood there.
