I'm so glad to see you posting Mr. Ebern...I hope you are feeling better! As for modifieds there's nothing better than the sound of a small block modified stick car making a single run, it's like music!

Anybody know what ever happened to the "Addict" D/MP Corvette. My Dad raced against it in the early '70s at Mason Dixon, 75-80 & York.

The old vettes are still my favorites, and loved modified,I still love the sound of 10,000 plus small block w/ 40 lbs. flywheel,I wish cars still sounded like that.
There are several videos on you tube that I love to watch and listen to one from IHRA WCS series @ Branierd( spelling) @ Chatanooga Tn.
ANY of Mike Boyles Good ol Charlie Brown, I have'nt got to see in person for about 10 years does Good ol Charlie Brown still have the heavy wheel in it?

Back to Vette's I think when mention mod vettes you need to included, Ault&James car,
Larry Kopp's,Gene Fulton.

Way cool.
Today's cars are great, but drag racing of the '60s and '70s was better.

I remember Tim McDonald, Alan Marsh, Ronnie Trafenstedt, Joe Winblad and the Ault & James Vettes from the Springnationals in the 70's when I was a kid.

Thought I would treat the Corvette lovers here on CR wit a few photos...there's more where these came from if you want to see them?

Notice how tied down the front end travel is on these cars, especially the Turner car. That must have been a pretty hard landing



Been a long long time since I've seen folks watching Sportsman cars like they are here. Not even Indy was attended this well. I wonder if all these Corvettes came back, would the fans follow them!

It was WAY to HOT at Indy this year to watch any S/SS except early in the morning. Dyno
