I had some crack up when I was doing a Bubble Up Firebird funny car. I got with Becky at slixx and she sent me out 2 replacement sets no questions asked. Great people to deal with from my experience also.
Are you building the original car? Or building the Re-Pop in the video?? The Army Vega snake has now, is a re-creation, and is not the same as the car he ran back in the 70's, and there are slight differences.
Great project. The 87 car was great. There were at least 3 made that I know of that year. One burnt to a crisp and ran off into a swamp at Maple Grove. One KB kept, and one came up for sale about a year ago on a couple different sites.
Garlits blew over 2 times. The first one was the most popular, and the one people know best. It was at the 86 Summer Nationals in Englishtown. That car was not badly damaged, and repaired to run at the next race, and won the championship that year. That was Swamp Rat 30. This car is at the Smithsonian.
The crashed car at the Museum, was Swamp Rat 31. This car only made 6 passes. It came out at the 87 Northstar Nationals, made 5 runs there, losing in first round. He then went to a Match Race in Spokane Washington, and on the first pass it went over backwards in the lights, and wrecked the car beyond repair, and Big Daddy ended up with broken ribs, and a back injury.
