Just wanted to vent a little about NHRA class racing. Been a bracket racer for many years and thought I'd like to do something different. Was thinking about running some division 3 races and maybe the US Nationals. Well as it turns out, my '63 Fairlane with a 429 in it won't fit into practically any NHRA class. Stock, definite no. Super Stock, sorry, on cut shock towers even in the GT classes. Won't even consider running the awful .90 classes. Terrible classes. Even thought about building a 289/4 speed combo. Nope, only way to do that is with Hipo parts. '63 specific Hipo parts....... good luck with that. 260/ 4 speed. Nope, early 260 heads very restrictive never make enough HP. I'm talking about classes where you can successfully campaign a Dodge turbo mini van, an 80's 305 Camaro, a V6 Ranger, a Dakota, or an 1980 Chevy Citation (saw one running last year at Indy), but I can't run a '63 Ford with a big OR small block! UN--Freakin--believable!
