1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
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.
