Anyone remember "Big Red" from the Gotliebs?

It looks like HP numbers are close mine , but his 220+ mph is flying. I am not sure why they never went for a land speed record or what his speed was in a standing mile . I have never tried anything longer than a 1 mile run.

I loved Big-Red.....it was my favorite Hot Rod Car for years....late model stock car chassis and a big block chevy set back about 6 inches...but the best part was the classic sheet metal..it just looked good if it never went fast...
