Drag Racing Picture of the Day!

Butch Salter's A/D

by Pete Garramone

Butch Salter A/D 1964 by Pete Garramone

Here's a shot of my friend, Butch Salter, running his A/D in June of '64. Butch built the chassis and engine. He did all the wrenching on this car and took Comp. Eliminator more times than he didn't. This was before computers and Butch kept a comprehensive log on every run the car made. As you can see, he runs a little rich at the starting line. I could always expect a slight wheel stand every time he launched the car. For the young folks in the crowd, Butch ran about 12 lbs. of blower boost. What are they running now, 40-45 lbs.?
