That Kenworth funny car posted earlier was a bit weird to say the least.  Another case of answering a question that was never asked and despite being well executed, no-one really figured out why it was built.
It appeard on the Gladiator Vega chassis as a 'swapper'.
The Gladiator funny car was the ex Chadderton and Okazaki Vega with a John Buttera chassis.  The basic chassis still lives as the basis of a classic funny car which should be making runs soon.

it was built to take a picture of.... '<img'>  ':laugh:'
how in gods name can you give credit for a picture and take the picture if nobody builds the car.... errr a truck...
oh never mind....

Is that Fred Darrow ? If so, I remember when Fred ran an alcohol injected Vega called Kwik n Ezy.His son Randy drove it. I saw that car at the very first drag race I ever went to. It won that night.Then Fred and Randy built a gorgeous S&W '23 T altered. That ranks up there in my top 5 favorite cars. Fred's daughter,Shelly is married to my friend Carl Brucher's son, Carl Jr.

Can this thread get any better? Holy Crap. I like the pics taken by amateur photographers of the cars both in the pits and on the track.....almost more than the killer vintage magazine quality shots.  Kinda like homemade porn is more erotic to me than the "actors" and models in the professional stuff.
