The Frantic 4 Racing Traveling Road Show took their act to its second event for the 2005 Season - the Goodguys 5th Del Mar Nationals April 1, 2, 3, 2005 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in Del Mar, CA. A huge crowd was on hand for this street rod/hot rod event that featured some vintage dragsters including the orange car.

As usual, there was all kinds of Frantic 4 goodies including photos, T-shirts and the ever popular Nitro Pickles.


Next door was Bill Pitts and his 1965 MagiCar AA/FD restoration.

Running on all eight.



As always, a huge group of spectators amass like moths to a flame when the nitro starts cackling.






Felling just like his grandpa, VJ enjoys the moment.
