If you are now scanning this
page my hope is that you are interested in drag racing and potentialy
interested in drag racing videos. I Have the European agency for a
quantity of American tapes covering the golden age of drag racing both
in the form of original film of the cars running hard for fame or
fortune in their heyday and resurrected original or replica dragsters
taking part in more recent nostalgia events. 1320's range of highly
detailed diecast model dragsters is also stocked.
The current catalogue divides
into three groups of tapes:
Brothers, Gold Dust Classics
and Don Tuttle.
Jackson Brothers Videos
The Jackson brothers were
fortunate enough to attend most of the west coast dragstrips during
the years of the gasser wars and the heyday of the fuel altered.
Luckily enough for us they took a camera along and spent what in those
days would have been a small fortune on colour cine film. More
recently they have been sorting through, restoring, assembling and
editing historic film shot by themselves and others and rounding
things out with contemporary video footage to make up these tapes.
Most of the footage is exceptionally good quality, indeed Jackson
Brothers filmstock has been used in feature films and by Diamond P in
some of their drag racing videos. I am proud to have been appointed
the Jackson Brothers European agent. The tapes are produced in U.K.
PAL standard direct from the Jackson Brothers master tapes.
Gold Dust Classics
Skip Norman at Gold Dust Classics
has produced a series of ten historic drag racing tapes. Featuring,
but not exclusively devoted to, the east coast tracks and a higher
proportion of full-bodied cars whether plain stockers, super-stocks,
altered wheelbase, A/FX, pro-stock or funny cars, these titles fill in
areas missed by some of the other tapes whilst still showing rails,
altereds and gassers. The tapes have excellent footage of years gone
by, see how the famous racers started out and the development of most
of the race categories that we know today.
As the track announcer at the
Santa Ana strip Don Tuttle was right up close, week in, week out, to
the early cars and competitors. He has produced a set of four tapes,
three historic drag racing and hot rod titles and a more
recent tape covering the 1994 Bonneville meet.
