I just happend to be on Facebook a bit ago so i'm steeling it for this thread. I see to recall seeing pictures of it in another thread about a compressed gass dragster which is not the same car. Dale Grantham's Turbine Dragster. In 1963 Dale Grantham built this 750 lb 800 hp dragster using twin kerosene burning turbines - normally used to start DC-8 engines - to drive the rear axle. Water injection made the combustion temperatures manageable. The car ran deep into the 9's but was way ahead of the tire technology and never hooked up. NHRA later banned these low slung designs.
