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.

Jungle Jim Liberman and an intense blend of flesh, fire, and burning rubber. Filled with the hairiest crashes, flips, explosions, and fires imaginable. It's a thrill a minute following the drivers, their gutsy sex charged women and the awesome machines that attract them both. Buy the DVD at http://americannitro.com and follow a ground pounding spectacle that builds to a climactic showdown between drag racing legends Don "The Snake" Prudhomme and Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen.
