The NHRA Street Roadster classes were very simular to the Gasser classes, with the obvious exception that instead of coupes and sedans, the S/R classes had no tops. Most of them also used small fenders, or stock type fenders in the rear and motorcycle type fenders in the front. Headlights were required. The engines and the weight per cubic inch formulas were very simular to the Gasser classes. At some point, the NHRA discontinued the use of the motorcycle type front fenders and mandated that the cars have stock type fenders all around (running boards were optional). If you loved the Gasser classes, you probably also loved the Street Roadster classes.
Not sure if this is a Street Roadster or a Modified Sports car, could probably fit into either class.
If any Street Roadster made a big impact, it was this one. The famed and feared, Tucker & Stoll AA/SR, with Hugh Tucker's 1928 Chevy roadster body and Dave Stoll's supercharged Olds engine. I had something to do with this team, as I knew Dave from Lake Tahoe. Dave had a neat V-drive ski boat powered by the blown Olds. He introduced me to Hugh, who was running his roadster with a carbureted Olds engine. I asked Dave, "why not take the engine out of your boat and stick it in Hugh's roadster and see how it runs?". And the rest as they say, is history. Hugh is a great driver and he kicked everyone's butt at every NHRA National Event they entered. Hugh eventually upgraded to a blown Chrysler hemi for power.
