See?...and they say the internets don't teach anything

The overwhelming success of our first "Assie" award sparked laughter and furor in equal parts all the way across the tubes of the internets. Reading through some of the referring threads I came upon an astute post by "RexRacer19" who sheds light on the true nature of our Mr.Mustache Aero Caterthing's ride. Turns out to be a 1970's vintage Mallock 11b Sport Racer. A similar one is described HERE.
I guessed the weight right, it was under 1000lbs.x152HP (vs 3000x315, no wonder we had a hard time catching up under acceleration!)
