    Jive Bomber, Do you have a link to the car? I can't seem to find it on their site.

    Couldn't find it on their site, so I assume they are sold out. One I did find was a replica of John Cobb, Railton Special from 1938 @ 350.194.

    I believe it was injected in 1959 and blown in 1960. I personally believe Mickey Thompson was the greatest motorsports personality ever. Drag racing, Stock Car racing, Sports Car racing, Land Speed Racing, Indy Car racing....he did it all.

    Your right-- Injected in '59 and then 6-71 Superchargers added for 1960, hence the air scoop body modifications!

  9. check out the latest issue of the Smithsonian magazine (July/Aug 2019) for a great article on Mickey & Danny Thompson...
