- Sorry for the long pause in the news as there has been no
racing over the winter months there has not been a lot of report. But
the team has still been busy, Swamp Thing has now had new engine fitted,
which is larger and more powerful than the old unit. It is now 540 cu
in. or 8 ½ litres, which is supercharged and produces 1100 Bhp.
Because of the engine upgrade this has led to the gearbox also been replaced
this time by a full race prepared gearbox by AutoMatics of Leighton Buzzard,
or E-mail Info@ukautomatics.freeserve.co.uk.
Also later in 2004 Swamp Thing
will change its appearance the team has just ordered a brand-new Ford
F-350 Super duty body. Which is during the next few weeks will be fitted
mid-season to the truck.
I have had a lot of emails
from people ask me why the name Swamp Thing and where did I get the idea
It all started when ten years ago I went on our honeymoon with my wife
to Orlando in America. We were driving down one of the back roads in that
area and there was a huge alligator sitting there and would not move out
of the way.
My wife said to me "look there's a huge crocodile in the road".
I said "that's no crocodile that the Swamp Thing."
The closer we drove in the car the alligator move towards us just opened
his mouth as a bit more until we were nearly touching. In the end he just
was not going to move and so we had to turn the car a round and find another
way back to the hotel.
And that's one thing that really stuck in my mind the creature from the
Swamp that would make cars feel weak and feeble and that would rather
bite you than move out of your way, just like the Swamp Thing Monster
