I was running my Gran Sport at Sears point Raceway at a Nostalgia Drags once. That Freight train was there and while I was in the build up lanes ran one of it's tire smoking passes. I walked up to the staring line after he ran to see two BLACK strips from the Christmas tree as far as the eye could see. Two 15-18 inch wide BLACK stripes, looking like they had been painted!

Oh yes, love the Freight train!

I think the point I was making is what John Peter's did with that car in terms of firsts and as heavy of a car it is.

Oh I almost forgot.Big Daddy in the link is quoted as saying it was one of the 5 top cars.

Back in the seventies a friend of mine that I used to work with drove this car.
Don (Red) Fogelman Was about 5'6" and wayed 120 lbs with red hair and beard and kind of looked like this . We used to go to the local for a "Hydrolic Sandwich" at lunch and shoot a little pool. He nicknames me "Quarters." Can you guess why?
The cars name was "The Odd Couple"
Take a close look at it.

If I remember rightly they didīnt do the business and instead of dirtying
Pontiacīs name they blamed a two cent part for not getting the record.

Ivoīs four motored monster was morphed into this, and later a replica of the dragster version was built.
The dragster was only let onto the strip for exhibition runs.
