Growing up in the Late 60's - early 70's, I watched many of these first hand. Push starts, or a few tracks had rollers that would start the car. When super comp was in its infancy, I and many others used old Jr fuelers to enter the fray. It was cheap back then. Old front engine car, 500 hp, one could get it done. Have some pics of my carburated small block with the front end 3 - 4 ft. in the air. It was tough to get the balance just right.
