Pro Stock Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
Some pictures that I took of Pro Stockers back in the '70s and '80s along with a clip from the Diamond P video "Decade Of Thrills" Note... the last photo, at 6:43, before the video clip is one that I took from the grandstands at the '83 US Nationals showing Lee Shepherd in the lead at that point.

Vintage Drag Racing, 1955 World Series of Drag Racing
Footage of the 1955 World Series of Drag Racing in Lawrenceville, IL. Includes Art Arfons' Green Monster 2, a 20 foot long, six wheeled car powered by a 2000 horsepower Allison aircraft engine. It was hitting 100 miles per hour in the quarter mile at this event. Green Monster Number 2 was painted by Arfons' mother to resemble the World War II Curtiss P-40 Flying Tigers fighter airplane, with an open mouth showing large teeth. The top speed of the car was estimated at 270 miles per hour, and it could reach 140 miles per hour in eight seconds from a standing start. Running on passenger car tires, the car required four wheels on the rear drive axle to withstand the power. At the World Series of Drag Racing in Lawrenceville, Illinois, it clocked the highest top speed at 132.35 mph, and eventually went on to a world record of 145.16 mph.
