Detroit Dragway - Photos - 1960s

Kirk's Carburetor Service raced this car #454 C/A. Also written on the side of this car says 500 H.P. Dynamometer. This photo was taken in 1960 at the National Hot Rod Association's 6th Annual National Championship Drag Races at Detroit Dragway Sept. 1-5 1960 .And if you know anything about photo negatives, you're probably used to seeing 35mm negs, that is if you're still using a film camera, but the neg for this photo was taken with a hassleblad and the size of this negative is 3"x5". I only found a handful of negs that big but one thing is for sure, this & the other 3x5 negs make for a huge poster size..I would go as far as saying these could be made into wall murals. I think the largest size made to order on this site is a 36"x36".
