Super8 (no sound) from years gone by of the Drag Racing history from

NZV8TV Ep3 - Nostalgia Drags, Central Muscle Cars, Willy White, doorslammers - Part 1
Central Muscle Cars
We head back to Taupo Motorsport Park and catch up with three of the
leading Central Muscle Car drivers; Paul Urqhart, Shane Wigston and series
founder Steve Hildred.
New Zealand's fastest ever drag racer talks to us about the ins and outs of
running a nitro funny car. With a best pass of 5.47 @ 264mph, Willy
certainly isnt afraid of showing the rest of the nation how things are
Taylor and Taylor
Speaking of drag racing, this years Top Doorslammer Champion Ross Taylor
along with son Jason run us through the details of another one of their
cars. Although its another 57 Chev, its certainly not as quick as the
Taylor And Taylor car we all know and love.
While down at the Nostalgia Drags we spied a car that certainly doesnt look
like it should be on a drag strip; Neil Surtezs awesome rat rod. This
Cadillac flathead powered machine sits its belly on the floor and lifts all
four wheels off the ground, making it one serious crowd pleaser.
Each year at the Nostalgias a bunch of Aussies are bought over for the
locals to go head to head against. We catch up with local drag racer Paul
Pins Satler and Aussie John Fleming to watch an epic battle of nostalgia
styled front engine dragsters.
Sportsman Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
The grass roots of Drag Racing, the weekend warriors, my old racin'
buddies, as we were 25 or 30 years ago. Includes some exhibition cars too.
These are pictures and video that I took at US 131 Dragway in Martin, MI,
Central Michigan Dragway in Stanton MI, Brainerd International Raceway in
Brainerd Minnesota, and Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indianapolis IN. The
soundtrack is just me jammin' on some Foreigner and Police.
