Yep. Big Daddy Don Garlits first real “rail job” dragster came about after he removed the body from his 1927 T roadster, grafted on half another Model T frame, and moved his seating position behind the rear axle.
And we were fortunate to get an interview with Don about how it all came about and paved the way for his becoming the most famous drag racer of all time.
Don is the subject of the 20 minute Episode 5 of our Hooked on T-Bucket Hot Rods Podcast.
