HERE is over 20 pages of photos of old, famous and not so famous drag cars from "back when". There are some guys who might not have seen them yet.

Enjoy...

Thanks for finding and linking these pics. What a treasure trove. Just wish more of the pics had notations about who/when/where etc. I love the shot of Stone/Woods/Cook in the garage...looks like just a typical dumpy hot rodder's hide out.

That is a cool shot, kind of like "Now what are we gonna do?" The next shot with the speed wrench and it's ready to go is classic, as well as the old speed part names, Milodon, black, etc. Cool Pics!

Ms. Linda Vaughn aka "Miss Hurst Golden Shifter" is still active in the hot rod scene.

I saw her just the other day on "Car Crazy", rubbing shoulders w/George Barris, I think it was, at a car show. Then again at the Barrett-Jackson auction where she was selling a Hurst Olds she was given years ago.

An unlikely icon of the sport- not many "Miss Anything's" went on to have a career as long and storied as hers!

And she STILL looks good, friends

I went through a bunch of the pages - amazing how many I've seen run and how many are no longer with us for some reason or another. Even a couple of the locals - the Muldowney's - that I knew well. Jack passed away a couple years ago and Shirley still shows up at a track occasionally with her latest husband.

The "protective" gear - phew!!! Tee shirts and a pair of jeans. Iron pipe roll bars and some sort of helmet.
