Book Description:

When our young heroes began returning from World War II, they applied the knowledge gained from Uncle Sam towards the fledgling hot rod movement. While speeds increased, rodders learned the hard way just how dangerous it was to drag it out on the city streets. In the mid 50s, organized drag racing gave hot rodders a safe place to race. Cars evolved from pre war coupes and sedans to crude rail jobs, which were stripped and narrowed frame rails with nothing more than an engine, driveline, seat, and steering gear. As hot rodders were the true Mothers of Invention, the cars later became hand made, finely crafted Slingshot Dragsters. Dubbed the Kings of the Sport, these supercharged, fuel injected Slingshots burned exotic fuels and captured the attention of every young enthusiast from coast to coast. The cars dazzled with gleaming chrome, Candy Apple, Pearlescent, and Metalflake paint jobs, while the nitromethane fuel produced an unforgettable thunderous sound. This new volume contains all the stars that waged war on quarter mile strips of asphalt from California to Maine. It s a vivid pictorial display that captures the true essence of extreme acceleration in all its glory.
