Haulin' Drag Cars In The '60s
This video shows how race cars were transported to and from the race tracks
back in the '60s. Most of the race cars, even some of touring professionals
were carried on open trailers, ramp trucks, or pulled with tow bars. Today,
90% of drag cars are transported in enclosed trailers. Gone are the days of
seeing beautiful race cars being towed down the highway.

Martin US131 Dragway, From The Beginning
The first 8 minutes of this video are from an 8MM movie that was given to
me by my old racin' buddy Dennis White. He was given the film by his
friend, Joe McNett, who's late father, Marv, took the movies in 1962-'63.
Marv's 'dark blue '56 Ford can be seen at 1;42. Although the film was in
very poor condition, I felt that, for historical purposes, it should be
shared. I have never seen any film from the track from the first years that
it was in operation, although some may exist. From the 8 minute mark until
the finish are photos and movies that I took myself over the years 1966 to
the present. A special thanks to Jim Luikens for providing the rare photo
of Arnie Beswicks '63 Pontiac Tempest Wagon, "The Grocery Getter", when it
was sponsored by Seltzer Pontiac.
