In: Dodge, Drag
When I was a kid, I watched Don Gartletts scream down the track in top fuel cars with engines in the front and to this day he still leaves his mark on the track. Well done Don
If you have the chance to go to his museum down in Okala Florida. GO! Epic. It isn't filled with just his cars, there's a ton of wicked rare cars there too. The Wheelie wagon, wreckage of the car that almost killed him and the car he set his personal best in. (Not his own car BTW, it was a hot pink top fuellie that belonged to a lady drag racer.)
THROTTLE, YOU MUST SENT A CORRESPONDENT THERE!!
Awesome place! When went to a car show there and had the museum open. Great time!
[…] Some way cool photos of Don “Big Daddy” Garlits doing what he does best, wringing out a powerful automobile. I am trying to find some actual speeds/times from this car with him driving, but no success yet. http://thethrottle.thechive.com/2011/10/24/some-humans-will-never-stop-racing-don-garlits-dodge-chal… […]
