Got a couple requests to see what's under the Corvair funny car body. Here I am leaving a fundraiser, had to park the trailer around the corner, that is 25% Nitromethane in the tank, should have seen the crowd around our car, trying to get a whiff of those fumes !! :guitar:

We were invited to Plant City, FL Airport to participate in the Planes, Trains, and Automobiles event !! We had a blast, got to fire up the car on 25% Nitromethane, it was louder than the airplanes, terrified the children and smelled great !! We've already been invited back for next years event :tu:
