About 5 years ago my hunt for the Galt Strokers dragster called the "Purple People Eater" which was built in 1957 finally made a good turn when I saw a post on Facebook about old Canadian drag racing items that lead me to a field north of Toronto. There in the tall grass was the remains of this once famous Canadian dragaster. I was told it had been there for decades and it was in very rough shape. The current care taker of this piece of cool drag racing history confessed he really didn't have the ambition to do anything with it and made a hand shake agreement that he would pass the torch to me if I agreed to restore the dragster back to her old glory. A hand shake was quick from me and I soon begun to load up all the remaining parts with the help of my pal Chris Nemeth. We soon had everything loaded up and were heading back home. I don't think you could wipe the smile off my face as reality set in that I had finally found the dragster that I had been searching for these past 15 years.
