This is the annual "Return To Lions Drag Strip" old cars and dragster show on Saturday July 14. I went there after the Moon Eyes show.
 
Lions was world famous and one of the last strips in Southern Ca. to close. All of the most famous drivers ever raced here - and records were set.
 
These dragsters are the real one's that did the deal, and they all start  at the show, noisy !!. Don "The Snake" Prudomme and Tom "Mongoose" Mcewen were signing autographs.
 
These cars today have 8ooo HP and go 315 mph in 3.9 seconds, 120 Mph in one second, 213 mph at 2 seconds and 4 g's acceleration  with 500 cubic inch V-8 engines with superchargers and lots of hi tech parts.
See the video here.
Amazing Stuff!!!
