Saturday Cinema: Ingenuity In Action – The Long Road To The 1959 NHRA Nationals

(first posted 7/17/2011)   Here’s a quarter-mile trip down memory lane. A professionally-made film documenting getting to and participating in the 1959 Nationals in Detroit, in the tail end of the era before before the big-bucks pros dominated the sports. Lots of unique hot vintage machinery, not to mention the plain old cars.
