Item description for Fuel Altereds Forever by Steve Reyes...
What type of drag car makes strong men shudder, women shriek, and kids cheer? A 200-mph, 7-second, 96-inch wheelbased AA/Fuel Altered, that's what! These supercharged, 2,000-horsepower cars from the bygone days of drag racing demanded the utmost respect, as did the racers who piloted them. Most contemporary Top Fuel and Funny Car drivers would quake at the thought of driving one of these short, ill-handling beasts. It took a rare (or slightly crazy) breed of drag racer to slide behind the wheel of one of these exciting nitro-burning drag cars.
Author Steve Reyes has included more than 350 of his favorite pictures of his favorite class: Fuel Altereds. Never-before-heard stories bring the action right to you. Relive drag racing's glory days through photos of rarely seen cars, first-hand accounts, and stories of racers and their cars.
Fuel Altereds is Steve Reyes' fourth CarTech title. Author and photographer, Steve Reyes was hooked on drag racing since witnessing his first race at Freemont Drag Strip in 1963. Armed with his dad's 620 Brownie, he began an illustrious career recording these freaks of the asphalt. Over the years, Reyes has worked for and been published in Drag News, National Dragster, Drag Digest, Drag World, Drag Racing Almanac, Drag Racing Magazine, Hot Rod, Popular Hot Rodding, Sports Illustrated, and more.
