I asked Roy about the car at Dragstalgia but he wasn't sure who originally owned it but remembers redoing the front end, but thanks to Mark Gredzinski for coming up with the US origins of the car , Gene Snow told him it belonged to Dickie Williams, built by Tony Casarez driven by Chip Woodall and Clayton Pool, photo and info from 70s Funny Cars

Some great shots's of Roz Prior's "Maneater" seen here in the Ringleaders colors.
This ex Asphalt Alleygator is still complete and around today, the only surviving SPR built rail as far as I know.

I don't recall seeing many photo's of the car laid bare. Interesting placement of that huge fuel tank back then.

some nice shots Jon, thanks again to Alan, I love the Crower injection on the Fast Lady, I'm not sure of the times it ran with this set up with no port injection but it's another car I'm looking forward to hopefully seeing restored
