The cars that the owners and crews bring in as support vehicles are a show onto themselves. This cadillac drove down from Virginia.…

In Paradise at Paradise Dragstrip "The short story of me"

Figured I would throw out a lil' info about me and what I love to do. I started my motorhead years at the young age of 5 when I worked on my brothers Ford truck , well...I slipped the fan belt on anyhow haha. And eventually got the smell of burnt rubber later on in his roller motor fox body...better than a roller coaster at the time lol . As the years passed I purchased my 1st real car, a 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 with a 289, that I punished beyond belief when I first got her...considering it…

Something Special

When I first got my GT a couple months ago it was mostly stock except for a few minor modifications. Over the next few years I plan on beefing her up to around 500 horsepower with a brand new engine and upgraded components to handle all of the power. I will either go with a DART block or the Boss 302 block for my engine swap just in case I want to go with forced induction either of those blocks would be able to withstand the pressure. Apart from the engine I also want to do a 5-lug conversion… Continue

"It's Cruising Time" is the headline on the front page of our local newspaper today.

HOT ROD POWER TOUR

To start our tour Dan's Chevelle wouldn't start after lunch just 5 miles from joining the tour at the Chattanooga stop. I went to the site ahead to find help and found that they have medics to fix any problem within reason. The truck that follows the caravan seems like they have all you need to repair anything, including welders. Dan got the car started himself and then the medics worked on it for 30 minutes to find the junction box on the fire wall was never tightened. Free labor. They… Continue
