    Tom McEwen teamed up with Ford Motor Company to present this fuel-injected 427 SOHC powered dragster called the Super dragster for exhibition runs on the national circuit.

    This T.N. 22jr was on the back of Jan & Dean's Drag City album cover. My oldest sister got to pick a bunch of albums when she joined Columbia House record club (remember them?). She let me have one pick after a minor shit-fit. This was it. New every word to every song as I stared at that back cover...:D

    With FC currently holding a higher speed record than TF and weighing 2575# vs. 2300# it may be time to bring back the streamliners.

    Its not streamlining--its air management. Top speed does not win races-- ET wins races unless its on a hole shot and TF is still quicker then FC

    Ron Scrima’s dragster, known as the Scrima-Liner was driven by Goob Tuller.

  27. Here's pic's of the Galt Strokers original streamliner dragster from about 1957 & 1958. I'm in the middle of restoring the original dragster which I found about 6 years back sitting a field for over 50 years. I'm hoping to have her fired up this summer......it's actually the oldest surviving streamliner designed dragster in Canada.
