Greedy sellers with no regard ??

Re: Jack McClure Rocket Kart History and....

Hi Bob, Yes, he ran it at Thompson Oh. and around the country in an experimental class. The first Mustang test run lacked the crude wheelie bars pictured. Uncle Bill says the front end lifted straight in the air when they lit it off. The exhaust tube crushed and prevented a complete rollover. The Mu...
