Mighty Mills Propel Classic Hot Rods

One of the great features of The Race of Gentlemen (TROG) is the variety of engines that you can spy in the hot rods on the beach. Though Ford ’banger and flathead V8s are the most popular, over the years more of the less-common traditional powertrains have shown up on race weekend, giving the field the variety that helps make the experience well-rounded.

The traditional Ford mills often come with some of the rare speed parts that make hot rodders turn sea-foam green with envy. You’ll see Blue Oval four-cylinder machines built with high compression heads, and some even with prized OHV conversions from makers such as Riley and Cragar. Flathead V8s built with rare heads and hard-to-find intakes also get the senses going.

The Race of Gentlemen, or TROG, is a multi-day throwback to the origins of auto racing. The event’s exclusive 1/8 mile drag races, held on a beach in Wildwood, N.J., only allow cars built before 1934 — with no parts newer than 1953.

West Coast Race of Gentlemen

 

On October 15/16th this year the inaugural west coast version of the Race of Gentlemen took place at Pismo Beach.

Having been to Pismo a few years ago it’s an ideal spot, the beach is great and it’s a real “car hobby” area.

Unfortunately and ironically the weather wasn’t at all kind to the event, and it may be that it ends up being a one off?
