At the end of Friday's program teh nostalgia cars had their test runs.

And man, I can't remember having seen such a "drift-burnout" on the Quartermile since 1989....
Famoso Bakersfield March Meet 2010 Nostalgia Drag Racing

Old School cars at their best! AA/FA Top Fuel Altereds, front engine
Top-fuel, a real cacklefest. Bradford's, Rat Trap, Nasty Benjamin and
Nanook. Watch the insane Nanook vs jet car race, just a little squirrely.
Lots of other cars too. TA rails, Pro-mods, Super-Gas, Super-Pro, drag
bikes, some nice ET cars and one particularly fearsome 7-second blown 1962
Chevy Nova... oh yeah... and a jet car (5.94 sec 268.97 MPH pass).

Fuel Altereds - Gone But Not Forgotten
Pictures and movies that I took of some Fuel Altereds back in the '60s. The
most evil handling cars known to man, the fuel altereds were banned by NHRA
over 30 years ago. I was fortunate to get to see and photograph these
beasts in action. If you are interested in the history of these legendary
vehicles, check out these websites. They have hundreds of pictures (much
better than mine) and stories of these brave men and their machines.
For the soundtrack I'm jammin on Bad Company's Gone Gone Gone. I hope you
like it! Thanks for watching!

"The Big Block Chevy Experiment"
What would happen if you took a 460 BBC out of a Camaro that ran 10.60s and
dropped it into an altered? The test vehicle is Matsuda Racing's '48 Fiat
Topolino altered (normally powered by a blown alcohol small block Chevy).
