Some footage of the family race car through the years. most of these passes are in the mid 11-low 12 sec range, the older footage with my father driving and the newer footage with me. Broken ladder bar suspension clip shows how hard it launches with the 4-speed!
Ladder Bar system & Test Drive [S3-Ep.5-1]
If you've been around cars and trucks very long, you know that vintage, nostalgia, and rat rods are very popular. The question is, how do you make a nostalgia-style car with leaf springs hook up like a modern drag car but not lose the vintage look? Simple...you install a ladder bar system! But how do you keep the leaf springs from binding you ask? Ah...there is a special way to do it, and if you want to find out what it is...you need to catch this episode of GearZ. Then it's out on the road to test it out as Stacey shows you just how much fun you can have with a nostalgia-style vehicle. Would somebody please bail him out of jail?!?!

The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing of the past.
