Oh man we are walking down memory lane now. I remember a bunch of those cars racing at Dragway 42 and Thompson back when I was a kid and caught the drag racing bug.

Thank you so much for the memories I can almost hear the 427 in that Fairlane screaming to the moon thumbs

I knew one Ford Racer, Ted Wells, that had one of the 50 1966 lightweight Ford Fairlane that Ford had assembled and prep for drag racing only, his was a 410 HP with a single four barrel originally.
We were talking about engine RPM during a rain delay at the Orange County track back in 1975 or so, I was racing my 1970 Cuda stick shift 426 Street Hemi motor and he ask me what RPM I shifted it at and cross the finish line I told him I let the clutch out above 6000 RPM with throttle on the floor and shifted it at 7000 RPM with 5:38 gears and 9x30 inch bias ply Firestone slick it would cross pretty close to 7000 RPM in the 1/4 mile.
He told me he let his clutch out at 8800 RPM and shifted around 8000 RPM and cross above 8000 RPM shock bow
I didn't have a clue how high those 427 FE motors would rev hammer shock

wonderful to remember the past as it was ! i thought i was being tricked by the things that make the cobwebs my ol noggin has an abundance of !
it's great to see all those cragar, keystone, and chromed steel slot wheels as i remember.
with that said, has anyone weighed a 15x10 of the above, and compared them to a 15x10 aluminum slot [anson or fenton ?] wheel ?
i just remember all those wheels were pretty heavy back then.
at one time, i weighed a 15x4 cragar wheel, and i think it weighed more than the factory 15x5 1/2" steel wheel.
they sure looked much better though !

Mostly 64 and 65 cars pictured. Don't let the cover shot fool you, there's lots of AWB Mopars in there.

My lord, that was Modified Eliminator-type RPMs back then not so much Super Stock at least with big block cars.
