Stephens & Venables 1st rear engine dragster. Well, maybe this
really isn't the 1st rear engine car but the 2nd one. The 1st
one crashed on it's first pass at Green Valley in 1972. The crash
was do to the new upholstery not allowing the parachute release
lever to pull the cable from the parachute pack.
