Twin-engine six-wheel Mad Max dragster-1962 Popular Science.

As you may know, more wheels is better - at least, to look at. In 1962, Popular Science ran this half-pager about three guys who built a twin-engined six-wheeled dragster. The four drive wheels have a bizarre staggered track width, and the whole thing looks exactly like it was built by some guys in a garage, which kind of makes it great. Very Mad Max.

UPDATE: Here's a quick interview with a slightly older Neil Leffler explaining how they built the car. Thanks to Cyclotronboy for finding the footage.

Shit. I meant to search the FaceTubes for footage of this car, but then I forgot to do that. Thanks, CTB!
