This will drive you "loco" - locomotive that is! Red, black, brass and beautiful. That's the Honest Engine, wild dragstrip express. Sporting a thunderous blown Chrysler Hemi, this track-blaster is the envy of the rail yard. Check out all the big brass - from the fuel tank atop the coal tender to the Hemi it feeds. The cowcatcher picks off the competition and the fat slicks run 'em down. To slow this rail rammer, the drag 'chute comes in handy. What a fun way to roll - the Honest Engine!

Dave's comments:

I guess every mode of ground transportation for the show rod genre has to be covered with this one.
