Dragettes Dragettes

Well since I’m already talking about cars, and I haven’t made you look at any old photographs in awhile — not sure what’s wrong with me, but I will definitely investigate — I thought you might enjoy these photos taken by Francis Miller for Life Magazine of an all-girls hot rod club called “The Dragettes” in what appears to be 1950s Kansas City.  Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find much information on these ladies — which is frustrating because they seem pretty awesome.  I don’t think these pictures were used in the magazine (or at least I couldn’t find the article they correspond to), and the interwebs has not been very forthcoming either.  In any event, I still wanted to share — they’re just so great, from the matching jackets to kissing babies on the dragstrip.

    Radness! Although I’m sorry to hear that you weren’t able to find much information on these gals. Hopefully someone at some point in time took down their story. I’d love to know more about them!
