Drag Racing Story of the Day!

Out of Mothballs and onto the Rear Wheels

by Lyn Smith

Lyn Smith's 23-T A/SR takes you back to the old days!

I'm in the process of putting together a group of old drag cars from the 60's -- primarily gassers, altereds, and FEDs. Last year I got my old '23 T A/SR out of mothballs and have been running it locally a bit. Old guys and little kids seem to really enjoy it -- and so do I. It was built in the 60s, painted in 1971, won A/SR at the IHRA All American in 1976, and has been stored since 1983. In the old days, as a 5-lb. car, it also could run A/G or B/A. 

Lyn's 23-T street roadster heads for the sky!It must have needed the rest, or possibly, the starting lines have gotten better. It's been running 6.02 /115 eighth miles and it's still exciting as ever to drive (or point). It has a 430" late Hemi, Hilborn, B&M Clutchflite, Olds/Pont rear end. You may also notice the abject fear in the eyes of the driver -- but can you imagine a way to have more fun?
