    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

    Does anyone make a Donovan 417 in 25th scale. found lots of 16th scale suppliers. Thinking of doing a pro comp car from the 70's

    Also to be nit picky, real car has a quick change rear end, model does not

    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

    Thank you. I must have missed all these AMT kits back in the day. High School days, I guess I was chasing girls and driving around in my car.

    Is this not the same chassis that is in the Soapy Sales and Bounty Hunter Funny Cars.  
    Tim if you have a pic of the Satellite could you post it, I have never seen a styrene body of this car
  9. tbusch added a post in a topic Preview - what's new with Round 2's upcoming Tom McEwen Hot Wheels Dragster kit?   

    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.
