Legendary twin engined gas dragster the Freight Train fires up in the pits. While it doesn't have the cackle of the nitro cars, the "whomp" of 16 cylinders of small block chevy and the cloud of blackie carbon is pretty awesome...not to mention the engineering feat of linking and synching two V8s is a neat deal. One of the few gas dragsters that made top fuelers nervous when running for Top Eliminator.

1965 Dodge A100 Pickup Truck "Little Red Wagon"
Famously campaigned by Bill Maverick Golden, the original 1965 Dodge A100 Pickup Truck Little Red Wagon is best remembered for its trademark wheelstands and an appearance in a series of Dodge TV commercials in the sixties. Running the quarter-mile with the wheels up in the mid 11-second range, Golden and the truck became drag racings first full-time exhibition act, thrilling crowds for nearly 40 years. The iconic Little Red Wagon will be back in the spotlight, September 26 at RM Auctions Icons of Speed & Style at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.

Jalopy Showdown Drags 2010 - Twin-engine Dragster smoke-run.
Front engine, TWIN-engine dragster that was at the Jalopy Showdown Drags 2010. This was filmed at Beaver Springs Dragway. I had previously seen this car at the Wheels of Time show in Macungie PA in August. The car has two 392 supercharged HEMI engines. The smoke pass is almost required, not only because of the tires not being able to hold the power, but because it would surely break the drive train if it actually hooked!
