East Coast Flathead Racing Association

As the photographer for the UARA-STARS late model series, I was at Caraway Speedway in North Carolina this past weekend. One of the support series racing with us was the East Coast Flathead Racing Association. I think one of these would make a fun modeling project so I thought I'd post these photos here.

The cars must be late 30s to 40s coupes and sedans and, of course, they must be flathead powered. They use more modern cages, seats and other safety related items than would've been in these cars back in the day.

The frames and basic suspension must be stock type but, as you can see here, they are allowed to use upgraded parts like sway bars, shocks, and disc brakes. I love the original style wedge bolt on this car though.

Now let's see, I think I've got a Revell '40 Ford coupe somewhere . . . . . :rolleyes:
