Your in the right direction Plymoutharrow:

Danny and James Valencia used to ran it at Famoso in NE1, first injected on Nitro. Then blown on alky.

They sold it to move onto Fuel Altered, with 'Nitro Mas'

The blue slingshot is a genuine 1969 fuel car built by Don Long with the body done by Tom Hanna.

Thought I see similarities in it when my brother sent me a pic, looks very similar front end to the bonds slingshot and norms twin which I remember chatting to norm and him saying that priddles mr.revell car was best looking slingshot which was also a don long car I believe all very cool,
On another note if parts get here in time hopefully can test week before and be in the shootout ourselves probably be first round fodder but it's the taking part that counts :D

It would just be great to see the car move under its own power James. Fingers crossed the parts come on time.

I saw this slingshot at the Dover Reunion last year. It also has a Don Long chassis and Tom Hanna body but is a year older from '68...
