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.

home-made 425 Oldsmobile powered death trap
Don't laugh to hard at this. My buddy's dad build himself a rail job
(death trap) race car, powered by a Oldsmobile 425 big block. Once again I
don't have all the info but it does have an Edelbrock intake and a Holley
carb. The Exhaust is running out open
manifolds. Also has airbag suspension in the back and some fat Mickey T's.
Check out the HUGE steering wheel, it's bigger than the actual wheels.
Gets crazy going down the road. Thankfully he never actually took it to
the track. It became doner parts for other projects. Have fun!!!!
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

in drag racing history. The Wing was restored and is again doing what it
