It was 50 years ago on August 1, 1964 that Mr. Garlits recorded the first official standing start quarter mile pass in excess of 200mph (he ran 201.34mph) at Island Dragway in Great Meadows, NJ, about 20 minutes from where I currently live. I was hoping to get this model finished before 8/1/2014 but missed that goal by a few weeks.
