    What ever happened to the brass car revival?

    I've always been interested in the brass cars of the 70s and have been away from the hobby for a couple of years just when the new Riggens came out and then the Landshark. What happened with this class and who is out there racing it? I guess it's now called the gravity class.

    Al Thurman is still making and promoting Landshark cars.

    I'm not sure if he comes here much.

    I suggest contacting him on FB if you are interested in whats going on with that genre of racing these days.

    Thank you Mike. That's just what I was looking for. Years back it seemed much busier here.
    Larry, don't let that 50 year pin get dusty.
