The green monster

A piece of personal nostalgia - I had a poster of this car in my room when I was about 10. Art and Walt Afrons built several vehicles they all named the Green Monster, regardless of actual colour. Their red and blue version briefly held the land speed record three times in 1964 and 1965. Powered by an F-104 Starfighter jet engine, the car’s top average speed was 576 mph (927 km/h). First seen here.
