(Photos by Doug Gregory) – The other day we showed you a smattering of the cars that make up a group affectionately known as the “straight axle mafia” at historic Thornhill Drag Strip. Well we’re back with the rest of those photos today as we knew you wanted more! These cars are really cool and what we completely love about them is that they are not show queens, they are not coddled, they are cool looking, sorta rough around the edges race cars that have the right appearance, attitude, and feel to really get people’s juices pumping. Just look at the iron above and below these words and tell us that you aren’t the least bit interested in seeing more of them, right? Heck we processed the photos and we cannot wait to look at them again.
There’s something about a drag car with a beam axle and parallel leaf springs up front that will always be cool. 100 years from now, these cars will be as loved as they are today. Nose up stance, fender well headers, and slots are a drag racing holy trinity here at BangShift and they are on full display on that little Nova above. Man these things are awesome!
