I ran my 64 Vette at Lions a few times & Bakersfield once. Fun times. Street raced mainly. Inglewood, Hawthorne, Westchester, Watts, El Segundo, etc.My then step dad (early 70's) was sponsored by that A&W. AA/fuel altered dragster called the A&W special.
Raced it at Lion's Drag strip, OCIR, Riverside, Irwindale and Pomona.
He was actually pretty successful at the time.
There may have been a teen burger also.
Great photo capture! I worked at a gas station in Playa Del Rey (Hickman Chevron) and after hours we would work on our cars and the revving and "loud noise" always annoyed the local residents.PPK...
I dug around on the interweb and found a photo of the dragster.
My step dad wasn't the driver, he was lead mechanic, I remember him and some of the crew working on that thing in our garage and firing it up after rebuilding the engine. It literally rocked the world, totally farkn' cool! (Neighbors weren't too stoked)
He was into the street racing scene also, who knows, you may have crossed paths at one time.
Check out the nose of that '64 Falcon.
