Well, I've been biting my lip since this thread started, but since Willys mentioned good ole Ohio George I'll speak what is on my mind. Some bean counter at Ford mentioned to George that since he was running a SOHC motor that maybe he should switch to a car that people could associate with Ford. George (as dominant as he was) switches to a Mustang body and cleans house even more. That dominance forces others to follow suit and after a few years the Gassers resemble Funny Cars enough that NHRA drops the Gasser class! I was no where near old enough to see Gassers anyway, but I sure could use a few more years of history and pictures of the cool Gassers. Some days I spend countless hours on the Internet just checking out AA/FA, Gassers and late 60s early 70s Funny Cars!
