Item description for Slingshot Spectacular: The Front-Engine Dragster Era by Reyes...

Out of drag racing's early years came one style of drag car that stood above the rest: the front-engine slingshot dragster. The fearless drivers of yesteryear climbed in behind 2,000-plus horsepower engines and held on for a smoke-filled 1,320 feet. California was the early hotbed for drag racing and the front-engine top-fuel dragster was the king of the quarter mile. These nitro-gulping racecars thundered down drag strips exciting fans with their awesome power.

Among these awestruck fans was a young photographer named Steve Reyes, and capturing these early four-wheeled asphalt missiles was his passion. Like so many fans, Steve got hooked on the smell of nitro and burning rubber. He photographed this bygone style of dragsters from 1963 to 1971, gathering great images and behind-the-scenes stories along the way. Follow the history of the front-engine dragster in Slingshot Spectacular: The Front-Engine Dragster Era, with over 400 vintage photos and personal stories to help you smell the nitro and feel the horsepower of the goodold days of front-engine, top-fuel racing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Slingshot Spectacular: The Front-Engine Dragster Era?

Spectacular Images from an Icon in the Drag Racing World  Feb 9, 2008
In SLINGSHOT SPECTACULAR Steve Reyes once again shares some of his archive of images from what is now called the 'Golden Era' of drag racing. I spent many a weekend standing next to Steve at numerous drag races and it's truly a joy to look at this well produced book. If you're a drag racing fan, this is a must have book.
In drag racing's classic era Steve Reyes was considered the sport's greatest action photographer, mesmerizing fans every month with his work in Drag Racing USA magazine. This book has hundreds of front-engined top fuel dragsters, the sport's most iconic class. Fantastic stuff and not to be missed. All the big stars and the lesser-known weekend warriors too. I lived through this era and saw many of these cars. This book is as good as it gets. A+.
