A Porsche Dragster 356 style...

For all my Porsche friends...how about a beautiful little 356 Dragster? Well, Doug Church ran a badass 356 powered rail back in the '60s. He tried out the rear engine idea way before it became a popular mainstream way of getting down that quarter mile strip.

There was no expense spared on this Porsche 356 powered dragster as evidenced by the use of chrome on the widened wheels, chassis, four megaphone stingers and valve covers.

  1. John, where do you find these? This is even cooler than the McAfee 4-cam dragster. More information please!

  3. Here's some more info. Doug got his "Modern Specialist" dragster to an 11.41/115mph in the U.K. in 1964.
