Dragstalgia 2014

Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living’s easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton’s high, Lord, so high.

Also high this weekend was the level of Nitomethane in the air at Dragstalgia 2014, Santa Pod Raceway.

Now in its fourth year this annual homage to Vintage Drag Racing took place over a scorching July weekend and I was in my element….old enough to remember seeing most of these cars 30 years ago at this exact same Drag Strip this was history come back to life and I loved it 🙂

Highlights for me were 1970’s Funny Cars, Nitro burning Gas Altered’s and a large contingent of 1941 Willy’s but there was also lots of other classic hardware either on the strip or in Show & Shine.

No more talk, here’s some pictures…

Achilles and the Tortoise (or GoatSurfer is a slow ass)

Long time readers of this blog will recall me visiting Saracen HQ back in 2009 to scan their entire MTB catalogue archive for the benefit of the RetroBike community. Finally after some serious help from DrystonePaul this mammoth task is finally complete and the first 11 years of Saracen catalogues can now be found HERE.

I will also host these on my own site in due course.
