Here's one of my favorite Dragmaster dragsters. This is the Mooneyes Dragmaster with the Mark IV chassis. This is an exact duplicate that Dode Martin and Jim Nelson built at the Dragmaster company in Carlsbad, California. Pretty cool stuff! Take care Dragmaster gang and I'll post soooon!

Two Thing 1960. Images above courtesy of Flickr. The legendary Dragmaster "Two-Thing." It had twin 354ci Chevy's which ran 171 miles per hour. It did have the fast time at the 1960 US Nationals but didn't take TF eliminator.
I've always liked cartoons, animation, hot rods and drag racing. Ed "Big Daddy" Roth was my first great inspiration to draw. Other inspirations were Charles Shultz, Chuck Jones (who mentored me and started me in the animation business), Jack Davis of Mad Magazine fame, M.C. Escher and Tex Avery. I've been working in the animation business for 20 years and currently at Nickelodeon Animation producing Dora the Explorer, Go Diego Go! and Ni hao Kai-lan. Prior to Nickelodeon. Also while at Nickelodeon, I created and produced The Finster Finster Show! short for Frederator. Earlier in my animation career I worked at Chuck Jones Productions, Spumco, Warner Bros. Walt Disney Studios, Universal, DreamWorks, FOX Kids Network, and Carsey Werner NBC. I'm married with three cartoon kids and originally from NJ. I also like TV shows of the 50's and 60's and love watching cartoons especially early MGM and Warner Bros cartoons. I've been also honored by becoming an official Ed "Big Daddy" Roth artist and is the official Ed "Big Daddy" Roth artist of the year for 2008!!!! As of 2006, I became a member of The Standard 1320 nostalgic drag racing group.
