(finally posting vacation pics)

On the day we started driving home, we saw this awesome orange dragster just driving down the road, parachute and all. Completely coincidentally, and 400 miles later, I saw a sign for the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing, in Ocala. Pictured below, my kids learn the truth about who "The King" is (not just a character from Disney/Pixar's Cars), and some oddities including a supercharged lawnmower and a dragster powered by a V-12 Allison engine from a World War II P-40 fighter plane (1700 cubic inches, produces 2000 HP on straight gasoline).
