The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.
No specific car, was reading an article from 1975 about all the different combinations for Pro Comp that year. And a dual engine injected on gas or alcohol caught my attention. Something different with a Donovan sounded cool. Also thinking about insted of two 417's going with a small block and a Hemi like the Odd Couple gas dragster I mostly build "what If" kind of models
This is a straight repop of the Flying Wedge with new body parts and some different headers. you can build it either way, headers out body or down below like a funny car, it has panels to fill in the header holes. If I had a way of posting pictures I would post this car along with the new flying wedge and an original that I have. I have a picture somewhere of the real car that has a bunch of panels cut out of the wedge. It was producing to much downforce for the horsepower at the time
The Snake car was a Kent Fuller car, I think built in early 1972 after the wedge, One thing I noticed in the kit, is that it does not have the Lenco 2 speed transmission, even though it is mentioned on the brochure that comes with the kit. The yet to be released Mongoose dragster was a Garlits built car. This is the orignal Garlits rear engine car with some new parts
The lighter car you refer is the yellow car, that is refered to as the Yellow Feather car. It was a Kent Fuller built car, not a Garlits car. Tom McEwen had a Garlits car built for himself. Just a note the Mongoose never had a wedge car built. even though Hot Wheels had one made, that was never a real car.
