The car in the photo is Lola T70 MkIII Coupe Chassis No. SL73/117. It was first sold to James Garner for his American International Racing Team and ran the '69 Daytona 24 hrs finishing 2nd. Garner sold it and it was used in the George Lucas film THX1138. It ended up with Eddie and he and Ercie used it as their wedding car.

A very innovative dragster !  I don't see any headers for the center exhaust though; were they routed underneath ?
Tom,
 This is the best pic of the motors I have.Looks like he ran them underneath.Last pic is by Dave Downs.

Hi, This is Eddie The Thrill Hill, - I just registered here and this is my first post.
Yes, I did run the center exhaust pipes down and pointed to the rear.

A huge THANK YOU! for posting all these great pictures, and helping to keep the memories alive.

I am road racing now, and having a blast.

Cheers,

Welcome to the site, I've watched you race many a time, both on land and water. Thanks for the "Thrills"! We ran a Cole TAH  called "Airtime" (ex Jim Epler) here in  the Pacific Northwest and BC.

That looks like a blast. Funny thing, the colour of that car is similar to the Formula Atlantic car I crewed on in the late 80's.
