Video Clips - Vintage Drag Racing

This is the second page of videos from my collection of 8mm films. These are from various events that I attended as a spectator from the late 1960s through the early 1970s. There are some rare and exciting shots here for your enjoyment.

Distant Thunder Introduction

Another production video, this time a collage of NHRA racing from 1966 to 1975. It's the introductory piece for a DVD that features all the footage from the events that these were taken from. Set to the famous Drag City song by Jan & Dean (again, the reason it can't be hosted on YouTube).

Early Blowover

Paul Longenecker has one of the early blowovers of a rear-engined dragster at the 1973 Popular Hot Rod Meet.

Jungle Jim

Also at the 1973 Pop Rod Meet, a classic run by Jungle Jim Lieberman and his companion Jungle Pam.

1960s Drag Highlights

Dragster highlights from the '66 and '69 NHRA Nationals, features the Ramchargers, Danny Ongais, Don Garlits, John Mulligan, and many others not identified.

More 60s Drag Highlights

This extended drag highlights film has some good shots from the 1960s, including an old-style match race between a couple of the original Mopar Funny Cars that started the whole thing (back when funny cars were really funny-looking stock cars).

I hope that you enjoy the videos, and please check back later for more additions.
