Default ? for old guys

lets go way back to the early 60's. Does anyone know the difference between a competition roadster and a modified roadster?
these were the roadsters with the rear tires in the door area. unlike an altered where they were behind the door/s.
any help or leads will be appreciated.


Thanks Rod in AZ

Competition Roadsters and their brothers the Competition Coupes were nothing more than dragsters with production automobile bodies on them .
In my opinion they were the next coolest thing to a Fuel Altered .
There were several Roadster classes in the early Comp days with conventional wheelbase and wheel location.
The Street Roadster class which was based on early model roadsters like Model A's and Deuces.
In the beginning they were crazy looking ,way high crankshaft centerline monsters .
There was also the Sports Production and Modified Sports Production classes that were populated by Corvettes ,Tbirds , Cobras and sometimes even Jaguars and MG'S

A very well known racer who ended up a Pro Stock racer used to call the old Competition Eliminator....."TRACTOR Eliminator"...and I still use that name for it....

Extreme backyard engineering......

Like Tom said....a front engine dragster with an old body stuck on it made for some strange looking cars......

Old is a relative term...

The Earth is old...The Universe is really old

Some days I feel young, other days forgetaboutit.....

The alternative to getting old is not good so I'm happy I'm still around talking about OLD racecars sometimes......
