Something else,try The fastest diesel vehicle on land.. Nice lookin thing.

Would you believe that the derelict quarry truck in the photo on the left is the fastest diesel vehicle in the world, currently holding a record at over 272 mph? If you doubt it, you better read on!
The fastest diesel truck on this land lived its first life as a 1943 International K-7 truck. Then, after spending a few years in a salvage yard, in 1987 it was rescued and rebuilt as a race truck by long time friends Carl Heap and R.B. Slagle from Grants Pass, Oregon. Rechristened The Phoenix, it made its debut on the Bonneville Salt Flats in the 1989 Speed trials. It was now powered by a Detroit Diesel 16V of 1472 cu. in., placed in the middle of the chassis, behind the cab. There was no streamlining at the time and it ran in the Modified Diesel Truck class. That first year it ran a "modest" 158 mph, but just a year later it set its first record at the USFRA July meeting at 188.340.
