    Yesterday was the second annual Jalopy Showdown Drags at Beaver Springs Dragway in middle PA. It's a gathering of pre 1965 vintage drag cars, hotrods, customs, and gassers. Allow me to let the pictures do the talking here.

    nice pics

    i've never understood the appeal of those 30's coupes that have the engine bay jacked like a foot above the wheels..is it to fit a huge engine or what?

    It's the "gasser" look. It's for weight transfer onto the rear wheels.

    How would you even drive that hellfire customz car on the street. I mean it looks cool, but I would want a car where I could actually see what was in front of me.

    That's my friend Jen. She does pinstriping, art, and photography. Go to any show in the Northeast and you'll see her there.
