indeed it was one of the first. it's crazy.. i was sitting in it.. and you literaly sit ON the differential. The brakes is a lever you pull with your hand. and the front window is pretty much worthless.... all you see is the blower. LOL! I guess when you're just going in a stright line, that doesn't really matter.
The car runs an 345ci oldsmobile engine. it ran a 10.38 at 140.68 mph back at the 1959 Nationals.
I have a fe wmore shots of it I'll upload because it's so strange looking.. but in a very cool way!
