Magicar Fires up the Night
By John Hutchinson
Outside the NHRA Motorsports Museum on the evening of the 9 November 2001 to commemorate the NHRA's 50th Anniversary. In total darkness they fired up the "Magicar" front-engined top fuel dragster with Jeep Hampshire at the controls. With two foot flames leaping from the header pipes and the beautiful cackling sound, all that's missing is the smell of nitro.
