ENDANGERED SPECIES: VINTAGE DRAG RACING

Hot rodding historian and ROD and CUSTOM editor Pat Ganahl rants about the sport’s latest ENDANGERED SPECIES: VINTAGE DRAG RACING. Nostalgia drag racing - like the once - revered Antique Nationals - has fallen victim to rules and regs that turn away true vintage hot rods and drag cars. I only did a tiny rant last time.
