I'm a fan of Garlits since '63 when he let me sit in his car for a picture! The fact that he was ALWAYS a threat didn't hurt either!

I am not a fan of the rear engine cars. To me they did not represent drag racing like the look of a front motor car. When Garlits started winning with his '71 RED car, it was a sad time for me. I thought the RED cars looked like an exagerated cartoon of a formula 1 car!

Therefore my "fave" is the slingshot that Garlits called the prettiest car he owned...

Swamp Rat 12-B. A very long wheelbase... full bodywork... great black and red paint... and a stunning win record!!!
