I was looking at another site, and it gave me an idea. Let's post up our old Drag race photos from the 50's, 60's and 70's. I'm sure some of you have some pretty cool old car photos from "back in the day". Let's see what you all have stashed away.

Here's a picture of my 1962 Ford 406 that was taken at shadyside dragway in 1962 when it was dirt. I was racing a 409 chevrolet in this picture. not only was I in front of him, but I won the race. It was alot of fun racing back then when everything was simple.

When I first came to this board I tested the waters on T.O.B.T. and it failed because most come here to joke around, stir up shit, or unwind. Then someone mentioned the drag racing section for my thread. Its more of a serious tone over there, and I never really wandered there, good information there, It was welcome over there and has 31 pages. Heres a link to it, or you can try another here but it will not last.

Looks like Gainesville to me. Buster and NHRA crew is there so it might have been an early '70s Gatornationals.

NY National Speedway circa 1972. They used to run class eliminations and time trials four wide.

The Firebird belonged to Phil Monteith.

so was there any track prep when racing on dirt ?? cool pic..
lol. all they would do was scrape the track and water it some to keep the dust down, but after awhile, the track would get back dusty. shadyside was also running the opposite way back then. as you can see in my avatar shadyside has really changed, and I'm still in dragracing can you believe it?? I know I have made more passes at shadyside than anybody since its my home track.

Those photos were great, but I'm looking for less flip top funny cars, and more door slammers.
