by Howard V. Koby

128-page Well Illustrated Paperback

8 1/2" x 10 1/4" paperback ...  128 pages ... 136 great photos with very detailed captions. Published by Iconografix Books. Copyright 2004.

About this Title: "The early '70s were a pivotal time for rear engine dragsters. ''Slingshots'' were front engine fire-breathing diggers where the driver sat just three feet behind the motor. This set-up proved to be very dangerous, so in 1970 at Lions Drag Strip ''Big Daddy'' Don Garlits vowed, after a horrific transmission explosion in his slingshot Wynns Charger, that he would formulate a design that would put the fuel motor behind him.

The emergence of the rear-engine dragster rekindled the interest in the Top Fuel Eliminator class. Legendary championship drivers like TV Tommy Ivo, Tony Nancy, Gary Beck, Don Prudhomme, Jerry Ruth, Carl Olson, Tom McEwen, Shirley Muldowney, James Warren, Jeb Allen, Herm Peterson, Steve Carbone and many more, are all portrayed in sensational fire-and-smoke belching action at the race track."

About Iconografix Books: These are the "class of the field" when it comes to racing books. High quality photos (nearly as good a glossies themselves) ... hardcore technically-oriented subject matter, including many rare images of the mechanical workings of the cars themselves.
