Yellow Fang '76
Yellow Fang was Ed's entry into drag racing.

Ed overheard George "The Bushmaster" Schreiber talking about how streamlined dragsters were making better times.

Ed showed George a clay model and thus Yellow Fang was born.

After discussing how much stress the body would take Ed decided to use aluminum instead of fiberglass. Tom Hanna took six months to complete the aluminum body.

The Steve Swaja-designed, Jim Davis-chassied Fang won many Top Eliminators and ran a best ever of 7.86 at 204 mph.
