I can't remember any signs being blown off, it was the days before video and i filmed him on super 8 will have to get the projector down from the attic .there is some good video on the net .if some one can put a link on here it would be good can any one remember if it was this car that blew the signs off the gantry at the pod ? a pickup truck was parked behind near the shed with the back up, and the back blast nocked the signs off ?
Remember seeing it run the 1/4 in 3. something seconds at well over 300mph which in the eighties, I think it was, was far quicker than anything else was running. An awesome sight.I have seen photos of that my dad says it was somthing to see,
dose it still run and what kind of times did it do ive got an old photo where it looks like shockwaves coming out of it
think it was 370 mph ...the car 30,000hp ??I THINK YOU WILL FIND SLAMI'N SAMMY MILLER HOLDS THE WORLD RECORD FOR THE QUICKE'S TIME AND TOP SPEED FOR THE STANDING QUARTER MILE IN THE WORLD,
