Have Some Fun
« on: January 08, 2013, 09:25:22 AM »
Lets have some fun with this. Take a look at all of our diverse back grounds that brought us to this point in our rodding life. It is an "addiction" but hey it is a good one. One that helps us make friends and networking. So dig into those old photo albums and let take that walk back into tyme.

This shot is from around 1968. The hood was off of a friends 56 wagon. The 292 Y block in it was very healthy. This was a tyme in my younger days that it was nothing t pull into a friends carport, jack it up, drop the tranny, replace the clutch, flywheel and t.o baring modify the tranny with a Mr. Gasket bang shifter and go back to cruizen that night.

That's kool a Pinto body on that big frame. I grew up around the dirt track's in Denver. A guy my mom was seeing raced a Olds. But at 1 track there was a guy that drove a small English car, don't remember what but I do remember he took a lot of licks from the big boys.

Quite a lot of the English 50s cars ended up on your Drag strips during the gasser years,Austins,Anglias,Pops etc short wheelbase..ideal for the class.
