One of drag racing's very popular classes formed in the 1950s was the Gassers. Enjoy this photo book, Motorbooks Drag Racing Gassers Photo Archive, which takes you back to that time. During the `50s, Model A and 1932-34 Fords were considered the hot setup for these gas classes. Using Ford V8 "flatheads" and later overhead valve engines, gas coupe and sedan classes had to maintain stock wheelbases and the engine relocation was limited. By the mid-'60s, it was rare to find an upper-classed gasser with any other body make than Willys, Studebaker, Austin, or Anglia. They were the stoutest full-bodied cars on strips nationwide. Touring teams ran four to six times every week, often traveling several hundred miles day and night to make their next dates. This was old-school racing! However, interest waned as flip-top funny cars took over in popularity. The battles in A/GS (later AA/GS) ranks created many heroes and villains who etched their marks into drag racing history. Gassers offered fans of the quarter-mile one of the most thrilling overall race car types, and for an era that was all too short, they were literally the kings of the sport. Enjoy this photo book that takes you back to that time. It features over 120 pages filled with cool photographs!
