This is very cool but it would take you over a year just to view the whole topic. It's up to 650-some pages and 1,855,000 views and counting. It's a thread of nostalgic drag racing photos people have been submitting since 2007. Neat stuff.
Back then when the flag droped you left. Back then it was in a 1953 Chevy two door 150 with a 348 motor and T-10. Upgraded to a 409 before selling the car. Bought my first of many '55 Chevys after that which were only $150 each back then (about two months salary or more, but I was still living at home and going to school getting my first degree).
we used to go to dover drag strip in wingdale n.y. in 1962 I was 12 and my buddies father would drive the 100 miles to get there sunday morning.it was great seeing all the altered's and willy's, 55 chevy's modified and gassers..those were the days
