Mustang based drag car article from 1971
#1
Found this 1971 Hot Rod magazine in an Antique store on the weekend. Bought it 'cause of the picture on the cover. So looks like 71 Mustangs were pretty popular basis for drag cars back in the day. I found 3 references to these cars as drag racers including Cha Cha Muldowney at NHRA Nationals Top Fuel 71 Eliminators.
So Rocketfoot, is it okay to post some of the scanned article about the Sidewinder rear-engine SOHC 427 Mach1? I'm not sure how copyright works on something like this. I've stayed under the 10% rule and making it clear where the original article comes from. So is it okay to post some more or will that create copyright issues for the site?
Here at least are a couple of images:

Sure...please post! As long as you mention the source, there shouldn't be any problems with copyrights.
