Thompson also entered a front engine car in 1967 at Indy. I remember seeing it practice. It is pictured in the following thread in post 2045 by Amphicar:

Ralph, hope you are well. ISTR recall Don Garlits' dragster as front engined when he was at Elvington? back in 1964 when he was part of the US tour of dragster racers invited by Sidney Allard, performing at various venues across the UK . I was very impressed by the funny car of Bobby Sox too. Unless the memory has gone agin, another CRAFT momentRoger Lund


Ronnie Sox..

Thanks for correction. I know bobby socks are something entirely different......

Those cars were just stupendous in their day, esp to a callow youth

After everyone criticized Thompson for building an unorthodox car for 1964, impliedly blaming him for the deaths of Sachs and MacDonald, he went the other extreme and went retro.
