Product Overview

In the mid ''50s, organized drag racing gave hot rodders a safe place to race. Cars evolved from pre-war coupes and sedans to crude "rail jobs," which were stripped and narrowed frame rails with nothing more than an engine, driveline, seat, and steering gear. As hot rodders were the true Mothers of Invention, the cars later became hand-made, finely crafted "Slingshot Dragsters." Dubbed the "Kings of the Sport," these supercharged, fuel-injected Slingshots burned exotic fuels and captured the attention of every young enthusiast from coast to coast. This new funny car book contains all the stars that waged war on quarter-mile strips of asphalt from California to Maine--a vivid pictorial display that truly captures the essence of extreme acceleration in all its glory.
