Item description for Funny Car Fever: The Birth of Drag Racing's Wildest Class by Steve Reyes...

There wasn t always a class for these funny-looking cars. In the mid 1960s, many of drag racing s fastest drivers were outgrowing the Super Stock and Factory Experimental classes, building cars that stretched and eventually broke the rules. Promoters discovered they could pair up these altered-wheelbase, injected, blown machines in exhibition match races and the spectators came running. Rivalries were born, the Funny Car class was created, and the cars kept getting faster and faster. Funny Car Fever is a humorous, heart-felt, first-hand account of the most exciting and memorable years of the Funny Car class. Steve Reyes followed these fiberglass-bodied, nitro burning machines and their drivers from the years leading up to the creation of the Funny Car class through its halcyon days. He s included over 350 of his favorite images and more than a few never-before-heard stories to bring the feeling of the class and the era home to you.

Reviews - What do customers think about Funny Car Fever: The Birth of Drag Racing's Wildest Class?

Fine pictorial history  May 29, 2008
Great mix of static and action shots, with extended captions. Steve shares a lot of his personal knowledge of the drivers and crews. Coverage tapers off around 1975. Not much coverage of the match bashers.
Funny Car Fever by Steve Reyes  Mar 30, 2008
If you care anything about the early years of Funny Car racing, you need to get this book. Steve Reyes was there in those great years of the sport.
National events, match racing at many tracks that are now gone. All the great drivers of the day with awesome photos and many very interesting stories to remember the fun times. I may have to get another copy as I'm sure mine will get worn out.

Best funny car photos ever!!!!!!!!!  Dec 18, 2007
If there is one book on 70's funny cars to own this is it! Tons of color photos with some of the classic magazine cover shots and handout photos. The greatest!!!
Three cheers for Steve Reyes  Sep 10, 2007
Ok nitro fans, here's the complete story, in Steve's own words and photos, on the growth and popularity of one of the all-time greatest, most exciting classes of race car in the history of motorsports.

If it had to do with drag racing, Steve Reyes was there with his cameras. Great job, Steve! You've recaptured my youth with this great book and your stunning photography.
