1939 FAGEOL SUPERSONIC

Quote:
Originally designed and built by Joel Thorne and Art Sparks at Thorne Engineering Racing Shop in Burbank, California in 1938 as a Land Speed racing car. The streamlined Thorne Racer was intended to break the Land Speed record against the Mercedes “Silver Arrow” and Auto Union Land Speed cars. The project never saw sand or salt.

Lou Fageol bought this unfinished race car and turned it into the fabulous Fageol Supersonic. Lou and his brothers Frank and William owned the Twin Coach company – which specialized in building jet aircraft parts and twin engined busses.
