US Race Cars - Jnr Thompson (1989)

Tom Thompson & Son

This shot reminds me of a slot car set up!

In 1989, Jnr Thompson's Prefect was officially the world's fastest and quickest AA/GAS car.
A long history in drag racing saw Tom moving from Studebaker to Willys, Austin, Opel Kadett, Opel GT, Alcohol funny cars, before building this mega Prefect. It has a "For Sale" sign in the window. One careful owner? My dad had a Prefect, but it didn't have as much oomph as this one.
