I’ve mentioned in the past, to check out all the neat restored racecars, hot rods and street rods at a Goodguys meet or a NHRA Hot Rod Reunion. Well, I left out an important item – the NHRA Motorsports Museum in Pomona. It’s right there adjacent to the drag strip and believe me it’s worth it. It’s free to NHRA members and I think it’s only five bucks for non-members.
They change it around periodically. The last time I was there, along with all the old drag cars, they had a couple of 50-60’s flat-head, track roadsters, an early Indy car and a couple of Bonneville rigs. NOTE: They have monthly “Cruise Nights” and can get over 300 cars in attendance – anyone is welcome and it’s FREE (along with admission to the museum)! Between my friends Greg Sharp, the Curator, and Steve Gibbs, the VP of the group and the others involved, they really put on a great display.
It is my intention to replicate our Bender and Hier, Joe Ito built, Lee’s Speed Shop, crank-drive blown, small block one of these days soon and have it displayed in the museum. Wow, how nice that would be!
Thanks for visiting and…
See you at the Races!
