PART 5 OF OLDSMOBILE FACTORY SPONSORED DRAG RACE CARS WITH A FEW NON RELATED ITEMS THROWN IN. PICKINGS ARE GETTING PRETTY SLIM AND I CANT FIND MANY PICTURES I HAVENT USED IN THE PREVIOUS 4 VIDEOS.
60's Drag Racing
Gassers (I was really into the Willys coupes!), Early Funny Cars, some Stockers, Rails, and more, taken when I was just a kid. Most are from the NHRA Nationals in Indy, some from Great Lakes Dragway, and from US 131 in Martin, Michigan. The Hemi Under Glass is a hand-out, not an original photo.
1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun
Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory lane with me.

This video is dedicated to my good friend John Seguin, who died shortly after he videotaped some of the racing scenes in this video for me. Here's to John and our other friends who share our passion for cars: cars and shows may come and go, including the MuscleCar Nationals, but our memories make sure that "Good Friends are Forever".

The 1970 Olds 442 my father ordered through my grandfather in 1969. I was brought home from the hospital in this car after I was born in 1972. Now my kids get to enjoy this awesome machine with my father.
