Thanks for that, it's way cool! Great cars, great commentary. Anybody else notice 27 cents a gallon for gas!

At 21:56 mark , is the original ramchargers car. It has 325 on the door and funny headers sticking out the side of the fenders.
They call it the Ramrod . I also spotted one car had drain pipe for a roll bar .

It was interesting to see Ohio George Montgomery's car with no markings. Thanks for posting this Dave, this was totally awesome to watch!!!

The header on the film clip says that it's "Hot Rod Magazine's Ingenuity in Action 1958". One of the coolest cars that they didn't show run is Creiton Hunter's Sidewinder Dragster. I've only ever seen it in magazine pictures, those are few. In '58 Ohio George was probably running a blown Caddy, he was using a '57 Cameo truck to get it to the strip and back, (I think that I read he won it at Indy).
I don't think that a model of the Green Monster was ever offered. The Allison engine was in Parts Packs and the "Miss Budweiser" hydroplane, locating one would be half the battle.
