I went to see a drag race at our local Drag Strip and saw my first dragster go down the strip.
I knew then I had to have one. I brought a used 92" chassis and found a partner who had an
injected Hemi engine. The first run down the track was like stepping into a whole new world
even though it was only 130mph which is slow by modern by modern standards. This is what
the car looked like with a blown lincoln 430 engine that went 1765mph in 1962.
Worlds Fastest Dragster
J.D.was hired by Romeo Palamides to drive a series of his then famous “Untouchables” Jet Dragsters, which reached a top speed of 300mph at 5.01 ET. This was the Untouchable #4 which was owned by Jack Birdwell and leased back top Palimedes beacause the prevoius 3 cars were destroyed in crashes.
