The Antique Nationals is the original nostalgia drag race. The 43rd edition was hosted by the Forever Four Cylinder Club and held at the Irwindale Dragway on June 2, 2013. The weather was clear and sunny at about 85 degrees. The drag race cars must be older than 1954 and the show & shine cars must be 1974 or earlier. This has to be the largest single day drag racing event for antique cars in the country. Many of 100+ vehicles are shown only at this annual event. The pits were packed, the gathering included Ford four bangers, flatheads and inline engines. The unique brands on-hand were Studebakers, Hudsons, Crossleys, Nashes and a nice mix of Ford model T’s, A’s, and B’s. The mood was laid-back, because this event was more about having a good time and visiting with fellow enthusiasts.

Thanks for the Show !
