The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-Don Garlitts-1986

Don Garlitts races Swamp Rat 30 in 1986, before it ended in the Smithsonian

Attempts had been made to streamline dragsters in the past, but leave it to Don Garlitts to take it to a new and effective level with Swamp Rat XXX. The black with yellow and white logo color scheme works, and the relatively plain design works very well too. I do like the swamp rat characters on the front fenders. It’s an A scheme. The streamline concept was tried by others, as we will see in the next few weeks.
