Alternately called McPhail’s Nail and “Wild Thing” this oddball machine was built by one Angus McPhail as a contender for the three-wheel speed record. Who knew such a category even existed?
It was originally powered by a transverse Ford Kent four, supercharged and running on methanol, although later iterations mounted a Renault V6 behind the prone pilot. I don’t know if it ever achieved any speed records, but it does take the prize as the weirdest dragster you’ll probably ever see.
