    Not being a car person, I thought this would be not that interesting, but found I spent some time looking around the photo Tom.

    Looks like a powerful beast Tom. I'm really impressed with the 4 post hoist...

    An honest C+C please!

    I'm not much of a car person either (F1 being an exception). This is a mates car - some type of American automobile with around 800hp. 6 second quarter mile. It was on the hi tech hoist to get a mono bar fitted, because he did a mono at the last race and damaged the car when the front returned to earth. They say you can make a small fortune from motor racing...........

    Rick is not a car person !! Mongo is a mad revhead ratbag (but a safe and thoughtful one he would like to think)

    Mongo too studied this image for a while. Question : how do they get this rig down off the 44 gal drums after it is completed ??

    found myself asking the same question, i'm surprises the drums handle that weight (ie. tyres aren't directly on the drum rims where the drums would be strongest.)

    it may not conform to OH&S in the strictest sense. the car however is very light. it is stripped, and the shell is fibreglass.

    The original company sponsor was named Pheonix, and yes that differs from the usual spelling.
