One for Big Ern
Who remembers the legendary Stones and their outrageous 'Stardust' Funny car from the 1980s? They were heroes to this 11 year old (at the time) and probably many more like me. Thanks to the British Drag Racers Hall of Fame from whom I have half-inched this cracking shot. AA/FC racing in the UK was pretty much the Santa Pod cars (Cannonball, I think, and maybe another), Showtime from the states, and assorted Swedish types (nothing changes). So Stardust was kind of an outsider, a family crew up against the big guns. Legends.
