These are the members cars that are currently being raced with the Nostalgia Gassers Racing Association. Some of our members also have other old gassers that can no longer be raced & have been retired. You can see these in the retired section. The retired gassers are still brought out for display from time to time.

In the Spring of 2012, I bought the car as a “roller” at the “Goodguys” show in Scottsdale, AZ. The car had been abandoned in the desert 25+ years earlier. A local vintage car collector had salvaged it, along with a couple others, and put them up for sale at the show. My wife, Debbie, spied it and said “there is our next project” and here we are.
