The Whooshmobile Turns 50

It’s turbine engine, adapted from helicopter use, made a mere fraction of the noise that a piston engine produces, emitting a high-pitched whine that led to the “Whooshmobile” nickname. The car’s paint was a brilliant red-orange, and Granatelli’s crew wore eye-popping STP-logoed coveralls.

  • What the hell am I looking at? A Day at the Lane Motor Museum
    Call me jaded, but these days I'm starting to get to a point where I've seen a ton of really rare and valuable cars. This is a pretty good problem in life to have.
