Speaking About a Little Bean Bandit

In the Paradise Mesa Post about "San Diego's first Drag Strip" I mentioned the "Bean Bandits" and their dragster.

Here are some of the Club members about 1953, check out all the hardware!!!

This is the same dragster today, restored, with their club logo.

They still have the Ford "Flathead V-8" with four Stromberg 97 Carbs in the car. These photos were taken at the Coronado Street Rod show this year where the car was being displayed.

Just about a week ago I got to see this car run again at a strip for the first time in 50+ years!!
