I thought I'd just watch the first episode, but it was so good that I watched the whole series in one day! Fantastic production. Sox & Martin were my heroes, and watching this made me realize how much Herb contributed to their success!
Back when I was drag racing, 50s & 60s, the best thing going was to hear all the 3 and 4 speed manual transmissions being rowed down the quarter mile, I love that noise. I did not do any of this as I was running a 5 window Deuce coupe with a bored and stroked 396 c.i.Olds in A/G class with a "37 Cad-La-Salle 3 speed, but I started in second gear and only shifted once.
As a kid I remember seeing Sox&Martin at the local 1/8 mile track called ' SummerDuck Dragway' in Va. They still had open ramp trucks at the time, but everything was spotless. They all wore matching uniforms, were polite and professional. That's the one thing I remember most. They put on quite a show that day, I've never forgotten it
Brian Lohnes' commentary and style are MADE for drag racing. The McCandless series is a treat for the senses...The Old Pro Stockers were crazy, crude machines...but they ran like stink and smelled even better!. Highly Recommended.
