    I got 76 Passes in at the track last year all of them wheels up and 2000 miles on the road last year some of them wheels up went to a bunch of Cruise night and a bunch of car shows and just had a bunch of fun with it all year long. And it always gets a crowd of people around.

    I think this was before the wheels got put on the bumper brackets. But you might be right.

    My husband and i were very lucky to become good friends with Pork. He had a great time driving our car on a couple of occasions. There will never be another Filthy Forty.

  24. Here's what you are missing, you weren't around for 1960-1970 drag racing! NOT trying to sarcastic at all, just one of those "you had to be there" things. Gassers, REAL gassers that is ( and most "gasser's today aren't) were once the fastest, quickest street driven cars there were.The look reflects the time, most consider it the Golden Age of drag racing.

    Agreed. I'm envious of those who got to actually experience it.

    I guess tire technology has changed the stance of gasser from what I can read between the lines.

    The early ones posted look awesome, but the newer ones while gasser in style seem just to sit high and run mostly a straight front axle but just dont seem to have that huge reverse rake like the early ones did.
