That is a twin engine / rear engine sidewinder.
Looks like they’re having a umm, wheelie great time.

Ok fellas, I really should not have to state this but, went thru and cleaned up the last few pages after numerous reports, The cut off is 1965 here, while most front engine dragsters will get a pass, absolutely no rear engine (modern) dragsters and no modern pics of vintage styled cars
The Greeks Twin at Union Grove.
Dry Lakes cars
Definitely some "weed burners" there!
That's a great shot of Riverside. What year did they cease to have a dragstrip there?
Sneaky Pete Robinson...
If I remember right this was for a marine application.
Looks like twin pontiacs. Maybe one of Mickey's setups for his speed boat
I did a Google image search and it came up as a picture of the Challenger. Of course it used two more also
It's two of the Challenger's engines. The photo shows some of Fritz Voight's amazing engineering.
I pity the guy that had to change the inboard spark plugs.
Didn't Cook Machine, build that lash up for Mickey ? Maybe Cyclone Kevin, has some background on this.
Pomona crowds...early 60's.
Malise & Lipori AA/C dragster, GMC V 8-71 blown Wedge on gas...set the Cecil County speed record @ 173.62 in May of 1965.
Car was based out of Brooklyn, NY, built by Brooklyn Speed & Machine, first 2 pictures were taken out in front of Mid-County Buick on Empire Blvd in Brooklyn.
That Pomona crowd was a sloppy bunch of bastards!
My old mentor Dick Gazan was the engine man on this team.
