I have been active since 1959 (Chev. Impala, 348/315 hp, 4 speed, 4.56). Went to Pontiac in '61, again in '62. Stayed there. Still have two of the 188 aluminum front end SD Catalinas. I will try pictures here. The blue car alone is at Marion County, Ohio, the blue and white cars (picture of pictures someone gave me) is at Norwalk, Ohio. I will be there Aug 5 & 6 for the all Pontiac meet. If you live nearby, come see us play drag race. Attachment page tells me my files are too big for this sites capacity. Pictures by email if you are that interested.............

I was an active drag racer until the feds banned airport drag racing in the state effective 1-1-2006. :mad: :mad: :mad: There was a drag race every weekend in the summer. So I sold all my car parts and purchased guns. I never even owned or fired a rifle/pistol before this year. Now I can get enough of it. :D Heres my web site with my drag cars. http://www.angelfire.com/co4/041x/

Its open talk so it doesnt have to be 1919 related. I drag race a 2005 sunfire, 4 cylinder somethin or nother engine, goes 0-60 in about 12 sec's a real neck breaker. It has several #8 stickers on it seein how im a dale Jr fan so it goes faster due to that fact. Now if i get some #20 stickers (Tony Stewart) i can drive fast and kick ass, i always wanted to be tough.

I raced the pro-comp circuit with a AA/DA blown alky dragster up until 1985.
Had to give it up due to other commitments (house, wife, etc)
Kept my license current up until the early 90s then let it expire. FAA physicals got expensive, and I knew I'd probably never get back into it.

I used to drag race -- was cruising through small Conneticut towns on an early Sunday morning, after the Chicago Convention, tryin' to save on toll road fees, "camping out" on a creek in a small town. Driving a Beetle, when another "Beetle", one with this "old" guy pulled up next to me at the stoplight and grinned, revved the engine. Blasted my *** to the next traffice light (now, mine was bored, stroked, ported, tuned piped, multiple carbed and cammed up). He looked over at me grinning, said "It's really a Porsche, underneath." I didn't firgure it out 'til probably years later, it was Paul Newman.

I used to do sanctioned races, didn't cheat, but when I won -- gave my date the trophies for "being the best woman in the world," (at THAT moment, she WAS with ME, so that alone made her the "best"!) After all, what was I gonna' do with all those trophies, otherwise, melt them down into cannonballs?

But, I learned about 40 years ago, that a scoop the size of a garbage can, 12" wide stripes, big tires, loud pipes and burning rubber down the street doesn't impress much of anyone but my date's father when I brought her home 2 hours past curfew -- "What'a y'all been doin'?, where y'all been this late at night" "Oh, just DRAG RACING, why are YOU still up? "

CARRY on!

Not a drag racer just a car guy. My brother and I are working on a 1969 1/2 440 SIXPACK SUPERBEE. It is a real M code car. One of the 1900 or so that Dodge built in the last half of that model year. The first of the SIXPACK cars. Also we are working on a 27T street rod. Puttig a 302 ford in it.

Dodge didn't release the 6 pack the same time as Plymouth?
That doesn't sound right

I will always remember going with my buddy when He took delivery of his 440 6 pack Road runner in the fall of 68.
I was so jealous and I'm not even a Mopar guy.

Believe me. I love FAST! X-racer and current Viper & SRT-10 owner (still racing LOL). We never loose the love of that instant power under your foot, but wrong forum.

1st amendment is still OK around here right?

LOL 88 ;) Would those #8 stickers be right next to each other? (88)? You'll go even faster! :D
FN Newman in a Porsche Bug! Sweet GWR! :)

After the ballbreaking we went though before the forum change about posts being on topic and posted in the right place, curious how the mods deal with car talk...

Mopar produced its first SIXPACK cars in 1969 the last half of the model year. They were all built under the A12 option code and the engine code was M for special order V8. Are you sure it wasn't a 383 or Hemi Roadrunner?
