I like the streamline dragster Al. Very nice.

And I have seen that mustang before. Saw it up at the 2011 Summernats. Bloody nice and tidy. Hope you don't mind me putting up a shot of the engine. Smile

Oh and this isn't an actual badge, it was spray painted on, and very well at that.

Oh the bloke sitting in the car had to be lifted in and out of it by two others. Smile so it would not be damaged.

Don Garlits has a body by Jocko in his museum that he used to run, not sure if it still goes though. Now if somebody would just do a resin casting of the body in 1/25.

Here's Dean Moon's (Moon Equipment Co) version, unrestored and fully operational with V12 Aeroplane engine for power.

The other car is Dean's famous 'Moonbeam' based of a late '50s Kellison kit car.
