And in gas class most of us had no front brakes so we could only use a rear staging lock!

I forgot to mention that Ray Rogenbush had a cutch come through the floor of his "A" modified 4 speed vette in the early 70s and took off his leg at the knee and ran 2 line locks from then on, and it worked fine for him!
