Some more build shots of Scorpian.
Before somebody writes to me. I think the car was designed and built by
Bob and Roy Phelps, Allan Herridge, Mike Coburn and Andrew Hurdle.

As Scorpion looked at Dragstalgia a few year back.
Looking rough but still around thankfully.

Good stuff Jon, interesting to see build photos, I was never a fan of the car but wonder what it would take to get the body and chassis back in shape for displaying, sad to see it as it is now

I don't think anybody would want to take that on a a project, I'm pleased it's still around though.
I think it was a good idea in theory but I think it weighed 2 tonne or more.
Allan and the guys must have felt the same as everyone else and decided to build the much lighter and quicker. Hellbender and Vampire cars.
They took a trip to OCIR to look at the jets for ideas. I have those photo's coming up soon :-)

If my memory serves me right the pictures of Alleygator with the motor torn down, was after Roy was warming up in the pits on methanol with an auxiliary tank , and then turned the pump on to switch to nitro and melted all the pistons.
