Old warbirds utilized metal fuel tanks known commonly as drop tanks, handy for extra range and ca be jettisoned if needed. Making a car out of a drop tank and fitting a V8 into it? I say, that sounds crazier than flying the old warbirds in the first place. But, people do it all the time and drive them on the salt flats. They may be called drop tank cars, tankers, lakesters, etc. Whatever the case, sounds fun! Got a death wish? Even better!

Artist's comment: A few years before I drew this artwork, someone built a rather nice looking drop tank car with a faded ratrod style, and it hit some auction page. It was the first time I saw a car made out of an aircraft fuel tank. The aircraft depicted in the artwork (P-51 Mustang, P-38 Lightning, and F4U Corsair) carried drop tanks that may have been used for the custom built cars. I believe the P-38 offered the best tank sizes.
