Novem­ber 1978 (116 pages, $1.25): A street-le­gal AA/Al­tered set the stage for an ed­i­to­rial pack­age heav­ily tilted to­ward drag rac­ing. Ex-Ed­i­tor Wally Parks’s in­ter­view re­called the highs and lows of build­ing NHRA since 1951. De­fend­ing Pro Stock champ Don Ni­chol­son took Tech Ed­i­tor C.J. Baker in­side a 516-inch ver­sion of Ford’s rare Can-Am alu­minum small-block. Our U.S. Na­tion­als cov­er­age opened with free­lancer Tim Mar­shall’s clas­sic fi­nal-round shot of Don Prud­homme’s heav­ily fa­vored Ar­row los­ing trac­tion against Tom McEwen’s vic­to­ri­ous Corvette.
