    Lightbulb Gasser Regs

    Boring stuff but according to GasserMadness the rules changed yearly for Gassers.

    Gassers were originally "Stock" cars that used Gasoline and had to be licensed for the street with bumpers, lights, wipers etc and upholstered seats. You could disconnect the exhaust or use cut-outs. Four stock fenders were required and you could not chop/channel more than four inches.

    In 1961 the minimum wheelbase was 92 inches, so a Devon could run. They had a maximum engine height of 24" to the crank centre line and an engine set-back of 10% of wheelbase length. There was still a separate /GA class for Automatic transmission cars and if you ran a supercharger there was now a /GS class whereas before you simply went up a class.

    Which class you ran in depended on the weight/CID with a minimum for A/G (the top class) of 4llbs per cubic inch in 61. Apparently they used tube bumpers so they could add lead shot to to drop them a class if there was too much competition in the higher classes.

    As long as you adhered to these rules it was a Gasser. But like the man said the rules evolved over time...

    I heard somewhere that Ford Pops n Anglias could only run with Small Blocks in them for a while ?
