Ultra Digger Turbine Dragster.

My pop's Turbine Dragster at the Don Garlits museum in Florida. He donated it to a local high school, then they donated it to the museum. 185" wheelbase dragster is powered by a Turbonique 1000 hp axial-flow turbine engine. The turbine spins at 62,424 rpm, driving the rear end through a planetary gear box with a 8.67:1 ratio. Fueled by N-propyl nitrate, estimated 1/4 mile speed is 209 mph.
