Quain Talk


SIMPLY SOUTHERN - No prep, street outlaws, pro mod and drag radial are all "the thing" now, but over 50 years ago Factory Experimental drew people to the tracks. Fans responded by buying magazines, cars and parts that spawned today's performance aftermarket and drove the development of muscle cars everywhere. The West Coast, which got the majority of the publicity, may have had Gas Ronda, Butch Leal, Dick Landy, Dick Harrell and others we all read about, but here in the South, we had brothers Huston Platt and Hubert Platt. Their impact was huge. Thanks to Quain Stott and theSoutheast Gassers Association (SEGA) for helping provide a place where those memories are still alive. See ya'll!


MORE GREAT SUPPORT FROM HOT ROD MAGAZINE .COM
It's unreal the support theSoutheast Gassers Association gets from the fans and supporters all over the world.
It seems every time I turn on the internet or pick up magazine there is something about the SEGA.
Thanks goes to one of our long time supportsTommy Lee Byrd for this great article and gallery of pics.
Catch the SEGA atPiedmont Dragway this Saturday July 6th.


IT WAS A CONFUSED GASSER, NOT ANY MORE.
A narrowed rear end car with a straight axle is called a confused car by true gasser fans. It don't know if it's a gasser or pro street car. 
Barry Lynn has decided to remove all doubt that his car is aSoutheast Gassers Association legal gasser by cutting the wheel opening and widening the rear end housing to resemble what made mid 1960's style gasser racing so popular. The water in the floor is tears where Barry is crying not sure if he's doing the right thing, to late now.

Executioner #2c
AFTER A 4 YEAR SEARCH I FINALLY FOUND MY DREAM GASSER, IT WILL BE NAMED THE EXECUTIONER #2.
33 and 41 willys were always my favorite gassers of the mid 1960. I already built and RACED a 41 so it's time for the next step. This will probably be my last complete build so I want to make it the perfect mid 1960's gasser. Of course that requires a very hard to find metal 33 willys body. Also I wanted to use a stock 33 willys chassis. My budget wouldn't allow a complete body so I'm making a coupe body out of a sedan. Special thanks to Lee Kay for pressing out the exact replica quarter panels that will make the job of building the body a lot easier. I have been gathering parts for several years. I have a complete set of hurst airheart disk brakes thanks to Bogan Renfroe. Might remember Bogan from 1960 gasser fame running the Cat Skinner 41 willys. Bogan donated the brakes off his old gasser several years ago to the project. Magnesium front wheels were once on Gene Cromer's moonlighter, Gene donated them to me years ago when I restored his car. This is going to be a several year project because my time is very limited with the Southeast Gassers Association taking all my time, so don't think I'm slow just not much time.
I'll try to do updated when I get time.
