I've been sent these pictures from Luca Govoni from Italy who now owns the ex-Peter Kruse funny car.
If you have anymore pictures then please post them here as Luca is looking for history on the car.

Luca has been in touch to say that he doesn't own the Funny Car but his friend does.
And that the car is up for sale.

I'm the owner of the funny car, I wanted to thank Luca Govoni for helping me to reconstruct the history of the funny car. If anyone is interested in buying the car can contact me. Thank you :D :D :D
