Oh please tell me it's yours!?!?! I think that would cool as hell put back together. I'm also guessing it would be worth some large coin if it has that history.

Man, that concept car is beautiful and the funny car is totally badass! The one you found looks like it has definitely seen better days for sure. Maybe it is one of the funny car bodies that never got finished? Seems like it was never painted. Very cool find regardless.

Yep it looks like a floppy not the original car. Still a cool find.

At first I thought it was a funny car body, but after looking closer I'm thinking some kind of kit car replica thing.

I think that unless the owner wants stupid money I'd still try and snatch it up.
