Had vthye car from 77 to 92, 16 years. Traded a 68 Beaumont for it (wish I had it back too). Was a basket case.


Took a couple of years, put in a 69 Chevy 350/Muncie 4 speed/3.34 posi. Painted it white.

Later painted it blue. This is what it looked like in 92 when I sold it. I wish I had never sold it. I have only seen it once since I sold it....Want it back.

Do you have an old abandoned air strip around town? They were a dime-a-dozen during WWII and it is amazing how many are left. In fact, legendary Famoso drag strip here in Bakersfield is an old WWII air strip that the County of Kern owns and operates. The approach I would take is to take your case before your county/city fathers showing them the many benefits of drag strips in providing an outlet for youth, getting racing off the streets, an income venue for the government, etc. Check with NHRA and IHRA, I would be surprised if they don't have some promotional material that they would gladly provide you for just this purpose of promoting drag racing to resistant civilians.

We had many of those same arguments when they closed our strip. The town fathers were more concerned that their cows would stop giving milk due to the noise......&*%$$% IDIOTS.
