I don't know what happend with this digger.

Alvin AngeltonTX Description:
For some reason a number of these French-built aircraft engines made it to the U.
But all kidding aside, for all we know this car could have been the first dragster to use a tube frame and have a butterfly steering wheel
For many years, Setto was as well known as Don Garlits in the fuel dragster ranks, and had over Top Eliminator wins before he retired.
At one point in the life of this car, Jazzy swapped the flathead engines with a pair of Ford's new in Y-Block pushrod engines.
