Nostalgia

Welcome to Nitro Hot Rods Magazine. We are glad you are here. In this section, we are going to cover all the Nostalgia Drag cars we can. One by one, we are going to get them all---the owner, the crew chief, and the crew. All the people that get the car to the track and make it perform.

I have always noticed that when I go to a race, no matter where it is or why it is there, the track and what goes on there is a separate world all unto its own. The feeling of being at a race, the excitement of talking to the people involved.

In my twisted way of thinking, this is a shining city of Nitro, it is NITROVILLE.

We will have the stories of what has happened with Nostalgia Nitro Racing; the news and the feeds of current news that is out there. We have pictures of a few of the great photographers like Sherm Porter, Ken Hughes… Dawn Wheeler, David John, Nitro Fester and… Hot Rod Jimmy.
