Very enjoyable and lots of early race machines. Arfon's Allison powered Green Monster, lots of slingshot dragsters.

Oh heck yeah very cool. How about at 1:55 look at the weld on that roll bar! HOLY COW didn't have much inspection did they? Not to say that I don't do a weld here and there that I am not so proud of but damn, on a roll bar of a 150 mph car? I know it was done with a stick welder, I did a little of that in my youth and going around a tube like that with a stick welder would be a mutha. Just saying, odd to see a weld like that on a dragster.

At 4:00 that full bodied car on the trailer, I LOVE that sucker holy cow. At 6:10 check out the gas station sign, 27 and 29 cents a gallon.

Well I need to get going, I am going basically to hell. I am going to help my sister in law move, I rather clean the toilets at the coliseum after a Raiders game, no kidding, no really, I am not kidding.
