Any old drag racers here? Check this out-

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).

I'm a member over there. They're a very lively group to say the least. They love their traditional rides.
