Custom Car  |  Britain's first dragster is brought back to life  

Well, what happened there then? No sooner did I get all
excited that the NSRA Swap Meet was just around the corner
than I’m sat here writing this on the first day of December.
Talk about the years flying by. That may be an age thing, or it just
may be that 2013 has been such a great year for hot rodding in the UK.
The weather has played ball for most events, and I’m sure there was more of them on the calendar than for a good few years. Hell, we’ve almost two full pages of events for next year in this issue, and it’s not even Christmas yet. Recession, what recession? Maybe
hot rodding is not that affected by economic trends after all.
As for feature cars, despite the cynical comments we read from time to time on the hot rod forums, in 2013 we have not brought you an endless stream of ’32 Fords, or even Model A Fords come to that. Admittedly, when I totted it up, the Model A Ford came top of the feature car list with a total of seven, but that did include all variants from a Lakes Modified to
a phaeton, with coupes and sedans in between. As for ’32 Fords,
the grand total was two, and there was also a token Model T and
a ’34 coupe in the mix as well. Other Fords were a brace of ’36
coupes (aren’t they getting common now?), a ’47 and a ’52. Chevys
faired pretty well with a ’37, a trio of ’54s, a ’55, a ’57 and even a
later model Camaro. More ‘off the wall’ feature cars were a Dodge
camper, a Firebird Funny Car, a BMW (well, okay, Cosmotron) and
even a Massey Ferguson tractor. Pretty diverse, I think you’ll agree.
The just leaves us with British tin, an area we are sometimes
accused of overlooking. I guess those cynics are wrong too as the
tally is four Pops, two Fordsons, two 100E Escorts, a ’32 Standard,
a Singer Gazelle and, last but by no means least, a Vauxhall Velox.
Rest assured, the mix of feature cars will be just as varied
throughout 2014, as will be our event coverage.
From the latest goings-on at the heart of the UK drag-racing scene to the coolest customised classics, you’ll find it all in here. Find out how some of these amazing creations have been put together and what else is going on the world of modified cars.
