The title of ‘nastiest cars ever built’ can easily go to the fuel altered dragster cars, usually coupes and sedans, that burned the drag racing tracks like no other vehicle ever did. A new premium men’s T-shirt by Quarter Mile Addiction brings back nostalgic memories of the times when these bad ass cars ruled the roost.

The Nostalgia Fuel Altered Dragster premium men’s Tee will be a valuable addition to the collections of those who live and breathe competitive racing as well as the fans of drag racing in the 1960s and 70s. The fuel altered vehicles made for a fearsome sight, and ‘anything goes’ was the principle that drove inventors to cut, hack and remold well known makes into racing beasts, including a choice of their fuel, whether gasoline or nitromethane.
Such was the notoriety or fame of the altered dragster coupes and sedans that, when the nitro running Double A Fuel Altereds drag racing class were made AA/FA, the acronym ‘AA’ was referred to as ‘awful, awful’. The altered dragster vehicles could be open or closed coupes and sedans, and every part was up for modification, including chain or gear driven mechanisms, or where the shock absorbers were placed.
Some of the altered coupes and sedans are worth remembering. The ‘Archie’s Flying Saucer’ made by Archie Ary and Charlie Scott; the ‘Bad News’ of Roberts-Zartman-Cookery; and Jack Costella’s Crosley sedan converted into Comp Coupe. A Fiat body with Blown Chrysler Hemi engine came from Bill Coburn, and there was the Fiat altered ‘Lil Red Rocket’ with blue paint. Olin Davis brought along his ‘Little Red Riding Hoodlum’, an altered sedan, and the maker of ‘drag cartoons’, Pete Millar, had a Fiat Topolino Competition Coupe.
