The noted, legendary and highly-influential founder of the So-Cal Speed Shop (resurrected by equally noted and highly-influential rod builder Pete Chapouris), Alex Xydias will be presenting a series of very early hot rod and drag racing flicks at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum in Pomona, starting on February 25th. The films include footage of the dry lakes up through the 1963 NHRA US Nationals at Indy. As hot rodding gets bound up more and more in the polarized world of rattrap jalopies and pie-in-the-sky coachbuilt street rods, sometimes we could all use a dose of the original badassness. If you're in the LA area, go check it out.
