Kings of the Quarter-Mile: Rail-Jobs, Slingshots & Mid-Engine Dragsters

$24.95

When our young heroes began returning from WWII, they applied the knowledge gained from Uncle Sam towards the fledgling hot rod movement. 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 slingshots. 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. This new volume contains all the stars that waged war on quarter-mile strips of asphalt from California to Maine.
