If thats not the car....its a good copy. That type of manifold went through our rental car window at Speed World last time I saw Blown Dollars on asphalt. I Think that blown dollars is a sand car now with a pauter turbo system....that was seen last year at Speed World on the 100 yd track with Mario doing the tuning. Like I said a close copy.

I have never hears of this car/company has anyone else ever seen this car before?

Area code says Pinellas County, Florida

Is this possibly Don Cossey's old "Blown Dollars" car?

Don Cossey had two identical dragsters. One for asphalt and the other for sand. He bought back the asphalt car a few years ago with plans to race it on the sand. What has happen since, who knows.

Word around camp fire with the T/F car was some how some way the person was affiliated with BRE in FL. Things turned ugly and they now have the same engine that Roger (BRE) has in his dragster. Supposedly they made a few outings with the same catastrophic engine failures Roger was experiencing.

Yep

The scary part is we were talking to Mario from Pauters a few months ago and he said Cossey was trying to buy up some used sand drag parts and that he (Cossey) was working on Jerry Tolivers T/F funny car team. Mario said he saw Cossey in the back ground when they were doing an interview with Toliver in the pits.

Don cossey had to scam someone to have anything nice.

I like this pic of the dragster better. Look at all those curves. I check out this dragster awhile back. Clean paint job and a sick engine! To bad they can't get the blowers dialed in! VW Paradise sure does have the turbos dialed in.

Yeah poor Roger, he had the guts to really go after it and I admire him for that. That other car i heard about it showing up at bradenton and not making any runs. I also heard (so its aledged)that the guy tried to really screw Roger but somehow Roger won(again aledged)
Brian you must have gotten those pics from Stephen Thats lakeland(I hate that place) cause i see my youngest standing in the back ground in one of those before explosion pics.

I saw Roger at silver Dollar the last time he scattered the motor I've never seen him so depressed.
i think it did him in.. I hope not though

More than two years later, if they were 16 then, they're 18 now! Lol.

And, oh yeah, Don Cossey is a thieving turd. Just to keep all in context. Lol.
