Detroit Dragway Photos - Legends of the 60s

Lickliter Brothers A/C 363: Middle Eliminator for 1960 was won by the Lickliter Brothers A/Competition entry, a '57 Cadillac-powered '31 Austin driven by Howard and Pete Lickliter from Staunton, Virginia. The A/C entry won the National DRAGSTER Middle Eliminator award, a 1960 Ford Falcon Station Wagon, over a field of seven cars that had qualified for M.E. the NHRA Championships at Detroit Dragway in 1960. Accepting his trophy here is Richard Calvin "Dick" Swecker, the owner, who is listed as being from Staunton, Va. but is actually from Bluegrass, Va., a small town next to Franklin, WV. and this was because the Lickliter Bros. later opened a Speed Shop in Staunton.
