nice set, thanks! Can you imagine sitting on top of the diff between the wheels on those dragsters? How did Don and Connie see above the intake?

Cool looking cars. Seems like you took a lot of the photos while standing. I would have gotten down a little more.

The highest point of view was four feet from the floor. It's one of the oddities of photography and perception of those images that low-level images sometimes don't look like they're taken from a low level, because there's nothing to use as a point of reference.

Front-engined rails .. Wow...

Been a very long time since I've seen one (or two) of those! Nice Set!!

It's a re-creation of the Kurtis Sumar Streamliner, built for the 1955 Indianapolis 500 and raced by Jimmy Daywalt.
