Here are some shots of the “Mooneyes Slingshot” which was owned by Mr W. Wouterse from Holland and who sent them in some time ago.
I am indebted to Nick Pettitt for the history of this car.
“Yes I know the car well, in fact I used to race against it when I ran my slingshot with the Wild Bunch in the mid ’90s. It was last run in this country by Calvin Evans from around 1994-1999 when he sold it to a Dutch hot rodder. The car was featured in Street Machine magazine at the time. It was originally built by Les Turner in 1965 with blown 1500 Ford power and ran at the 1965 Drag Fests and at the Pod from 1966-68. It reappeared at the drags in the ’80s with Pinto power and when Calvin got it he totally rebuilt it and painted it in Mooneyes colours.”
