This fifteen and a half minute movie that depicts the people, places, and race cars of 1960s drag fiend gearheads in Washington state is pretty special. Yes, you’ll get to see Don Garlits run his car, but in our opinion the highlights of this video have nothing to do with the greatest drag racer who ever lived. All the rest of the people and things really make this film great.
Dragsters, gassers, shop trucks, roadsters, what looks to be a Henry J with a Hemi in the passenger seat (seriously!), the shortest rear engine dragster ever built, and on and on, this one has something to every lover of drag racing history.
