Englishtown Wheelstand 1987

In the 1986 Summer National Drag Races, Englishtown New Jersey, “Big Daddy” Dan Garlits drove the streamlined Swamp Rat XXX into a dramatic vertical wheelstand. Big Daddy walked away from that terrible accident, rebuilt the car and campaigned it for the rest of the season. The Swamp Rat XXX was retired to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. ENGLISHTOWN WHEELSTAND is the powerful recreation of that dramatic event. The streamlined dragster is presented at its vertical apex, the polished “God is love” cross shining in sharp contrast to the jet black bodywork of the car.
