Ramchargers kit or the Garlits Wynn's Jammer are going to be the closest. The Wynn's Jammer i think was released within the last year or so. Shouldn't be too bad to find one.

Unfortunately he needs money to make a go at the record at speedweek. Hope he can make it. Really like to see him get the record in his dads old car, updated of course

Just like Chrysler and the new Hemi. It's not a Hemi but because they owned the rights/patent/whatever they had to re use it or lose it. Funny thing is they stole the idea from someone else. They were not the first to use the hemispherical design. Ever seen the Damler hemi?

 

And UP and other railroads started painting locos in throwback "heritage" schemes so as to show they still use those trademarks and prevent them from falling into the public domain.

I've been to the Starbird museum. He had pictures of it in various stages along with its current rendition/ rebuild after it caught fire so yes I knew. :)
Pretty neat museum actually.
