Barbara Hamilton, never gave up fighting the NHRA for a license for a supercharged race car, they gave in after 20 rejections

Barb and best friend Nancy L. campaigned this beautiful coupe from 1964 through 1971.

A professional technical writer at TRW during the week, this weekend racer won the 1966 NHRA Springnationals and was runnerup at the 1968 Indy Nationals. All the while holding the NASCAR C Gas Supercharged ET record of 11.94 seconds.

Barbara is one of only a few women who built, owned, wrenched, and drove her own car.
