    That thing is awsum.
    When I was stationed NAS Atlanta they came out to the base for a charity car show and ran it down the runway, one very fast vehicle.

    Yeah when we go to Norwalk Raceway each year he is always there with that truck at the Super Chevy Show, If you want a really fun experience stand behind the truck when it leaves the line! :gasp: Me and my dad were standing in a crowd of people behind the staging lanes when he fired that up, and I think it burned my dads eye brows right off his face. And then when it took off we got plastered with tar from the drag way, we looked like dalmations spotted with asphalt! :party:

    I'd say that truck's more a drag truck with dual jet engines and a 57 Chevy cab tacked on, than a 57 Chevy with a pair of jet engines. It's probably about 3 times the length of a regular 57 Chevy.
