Just saying the name brings shivers of excitement. Purveyor of all things speed and insane, the now defunct Turbonique is most famous for their Rocket Drag Axle. An absolutely bonkers system which mechanically attached a liquid fuel rocket to a solid axle and dumped an additional 1000 HP to the rear wheels at the touch of a button. This system was so powerful an otherwise unmodified VW Beetle with one walked away from the four engined Showboat in a 1966 race. At the behest of RJ Reynolds heir Zachary Reynolds, this '64 Ford Galaxie 500 was equipped with the Rocket Axle, as well as a boatload of other goodies, and in May the whole thing is set to go to auction.
