Default Early Pro Mod pics...

Hope you don't mind, but I think it would be cool for the early pioneers of this class before they were called Pro Modifieds to get their own thread. When was your 1st time seeing them??

Thanks Jeff!! That brings back some good memories. Even though they were ahead of their time I always felt the Wild Bunch(Camp Stanley) and the West Coast Pro Gassers such as Dave Riolo and Bob Bunker were the original Pro Mods. They gave the fans a good bang for the buck with those heads up shows they used to put on.

Thanks for the pics John. To see where we've come from we need to see our roots. More ''roots'' pics please from all of you.

1992 IHRA Sports Nats. Scotty Cannon & the late Ronnie Sox were booked in for the show. Have been hooked ever since, didn't have a camera then I wouldn't have known what to do with it anyway then. So here are some from I'm guessing 94-95.

Brad Jeter



Carl Moyer
