Here is a "rare" piece of drag racing history.
This '34 Ford coupe is owned by a friend of mine who built this "nitro burning" monster back in the '70's. When Pittsburgh International Dragway closed back in 1976 he sold the car.
Recently, he found the car on the West Coast.... Bought the car back & has it running again. The two previous owners never raced the car since it was sold.
Currently it is the ONLY AA/FC car being raced. The others (only a few of them remain) are "for SHOW only".
A few weeks ago I was asked if I wanted to be part of his "Pit Crew". Needless to say I am very excited for this opportunity to not only be around this "vintage drag car" but also to "learn" what it takes to race a car like this.
PLUS..... I "LOVE" the smell of "nitromethane" ...... :0)
