Sunday Showrods...The Snake Pit

Barris built this car to break land speed records well over 300mph. As far as all accounts, this machine never saw the salt. It currently resides in jolly ol' England where it was going to be part of a failed Euro Disney exhibition. It was later sold to a private buyer in 2006 for $37,400. Not bad considering the buyer got 6 Cobra Jets, coupled to 2 C-6's, feeding to Pontiac rears. Maybe old Georgie couldn't afford Dana's at the time of the build. Supposedly this thing was allegedly cranking 2000 hp. Total build time was 4 years on a budget of $100,000.
