  1. NHRA715 added a post in a topic Front Engine Dragster: The Old Master   

    I remember this car,

    I was working for Speedmasters Racing Engines in Van Nuys ( across the street from the GM assembly plant on Van Nuys Blvd ). back in the mid 60's. We also had a Top Fuel Dragster & a Jr fuel car same vintage as the Pink cars. fact: Ed Pink moved into the Speedmasters building after they went bust in 1969, I talked to Ed's wife last year at the shop, it still looks like it did when I worked their 50 years ago... both of these cars are on my build list so I will be watching.

    thanks

  15. NHRA715 added a post in a topic Looking at other forums makes me wonder, what other hobbies do you have?   

    Now that I’m retired I’m relearning the electric guitar, video games and netflicks (sooo much to see),
    Plans for the future: building electric bikes, getting back to drag racing, flipping cars ( for fun & cash ) staying healthy
