Throwback Thursday-Gary Ormsby-1986

Gary Ormsby races his streamlined 1986 Castrol dragster

Castrol has a very good shade of green and a very good shade of red in their logo, and both are on display with this dragster. I like the idea of the green stripe up the side interrupted by a white background with CASTROL GTX in green and red letters. This would be the design that they used when they started sponsoring John Force. It’s an A scheme. I don’t like this version of a streamlined dragster. It looks forced, and it looks like there is no way enough air can get in the supercharger. The large wheels look clunky, and would create drag. It’s just not a good car, and I’m glad it bit the dust.
