That's TOO easy John, the Waldorf Nomad and it was based at least on appearance to the Vette but it was actually larger than the Vette.

Superior Glass Works is making a Kit car based on the Waldorf Nomad.

Apparently pretty well! Lots of smoke is usually a good sign.

Ok I presume that we all know that the dragster in Brian's question was owned, built, and driven by Haywood Botts. Twin Nailheads. Plates were fabed both front and rear to join the two engines together. Cleverly when they spaced the engine apart it was done so the two flywheel ring gears inter-meshed. One engine ran backwards. I'm not sure if they used a marine cam or had a special cam ground. Clutch and trans hooked to one engine. Probably the left one which turned normally.Trans went to the diff, gas in the gas tank and off they went.! Smokin! I believe Dave Zeuschel built the engines. I know he built them for the 4 engine job the Haywood ran. Garlets has the twin engined rail at his museum.

The guy in the white t-shirt is Don Prudhomme before he started driving. He worked for Tommy

Notice anything odd in the #3 pic?

LOLOL, when I read your post Dan a "Cars" movie like picture popped into my head with these poor defenseless Ramblers with horrified faces running for cover out on the hiway with that car with an evil Hitler like face skipping along the road like a missile at them.
