Doesn't look very green does it? I saw Arfons with the old original Green Monster waaaaay back in the early sixty's at Lions. Big Allison V-12 and dual slicks, still roasted them the whole 1320.

Couple of pics of my friends dual engine car. He and I went to Bonneville in 1990 as spectators. As you see, he got the bug bad. All handmade body/frame by himself in his house garage

There are just too many for me to ever come up with a "favorite" I love those cars, and bikes too.

This is one of my favorites, 55.62 MPH from 50cc.

I think I saw that car not too long ago in that movie Ingenuity in Action. Atleast I remember an Allison V-12.

he sold that car I believe, and has built about 1/2 dozen more. See his website (Pigasus Racing Team) for a bunch of cool bonneville cars he runs now and his history of catching the land speed bug. He has several records over 200. He and I shared a garage building hot rods in our twenties, both in our mid sixties now
