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.

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.
