The world famous Speed Sport Roadster. You have to hear this motor, it's outrageous!

This one looks just like the famous Stone Woods and Cook AA/F gasser! It's not though! Part of the Geezer Gassers!

Another modified roadster of speed!

This would make a great street rod car!

More gassers and they all look sharp!

Another nice one

Everyone had a cart but me?????

AA/Fuel Altereds were the most outstanding cars of their time because you never knew when they would go straight or not so straight.

There were a million of these injected Jr fuelers around

Hand me the whatchamacallit!

This little Pure Hell Fuel Altered live up to it's name. He even ran AA/fuelers straight up and beat them sometimes. It was quick and fast! It is one of my two favorite AA/fuel altereds.

The High Speed Motorsports AA/Fueler getting ready for another run. Walt Stevens, NHRA Hall of Fame top fuel driver, is part of this team. He is also a sponsor of Josh Ford's sprint car.

The side of the trailer has some pretty neat graphics.

Often in the pits they fire up the fuelers to make sure everything is back in place. SO near is the place to be to get the full effect of a loud nitro burning monster. The lady on the right is covering up because of it.

Another fuel altered

Bradford's AA/FA

Rat Rod???

firing up and ready to go!

Nice looking car for me.

Funny car

War Eagle

Yes, this is my other favorite AA/FA the WInged Express!

The end!
