This historic drag car has lived many lives. It was first raced in 1969 by Fred Goseke as a 1969 Road Runner. Marv Eldridge then re-bodied it as a 1970 Challenger, named it “LA Challenger,” and participated in the 1970 Cavalcade of Stars tour. It was later sold to Bob Taylor who raced it as the “Time Machine II.” It was then sold again and raced under the name “Trail Blazer.” The current owner embarked on a complete restoration to return it to it’s Marv Eldridge’s “LA Challenger” days. Follow the eBay auction here. $95,000 and she’s yours. More pics and video after the jump!
