Over in Australia Gary Myers has been wowing the crowds for the last few years with burnouts like this:

He has now built this 65 mustang equipped with a twin supercharged big-block hemi:

Is the top chopped on that silver mustang or is it just an optical "confusion" :p

I wonder how much torque it takes to start that thing.

Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. ::
This is a perfect example.
Agree; applause.

Yep, looks kewl.

Yep, will wow the drag crowds.

Yep, will win a show award or two.

All of automotive physics says it's a dumbass idea, though. It probably takes a jet engine starter to crank and loses half its power just to keep the blowers spinning...

As for how he sees where he's going, it appears the main purpose of this car is to do low-tech drifting, spinning around on the track. A la Bill Cosby, it's a nice way to drive. :)

Twin turbos with fuel injection would probably be a more useful approach - but twin turbos wouldn't have the bling bling factor to anywhere near that extent.

Yep I think you are right, it has more to do with the bling bling factor than practical automotive engineering (whatever that is ;)).
