Default Modified Eliminator Wars in the 70's

As many would agree ,the greatest eliminator killed off by the NHRA . No slush boxes here. No 5 speeds. Liberty 4 speed chrysler boxes were a way of life. Some of the most succesful drivers of the sport cut their teeth here.

There were quite a few 5 speeds from the mid 70s on.

I crewed on my friends F/G Corvette for a while and must have helped pull the trans a half a dozen times. It was a hemi 4 speed sitting on my chest. I believe this this was either 75 or 76. I know they updated the car after a flywheel explosion and crash and probably went to the 5 speed at that time.

Any pictures or stories of modified before they dumped it I believe in 1982. The protest must have been something to see.

It was dumped at the end of the '81 season. Here's a link to some of my Modified pics.
