We recently visited the Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing and its sister Antique Car Museum located on the same property. Both are fine museums but the real attraction are the Swap Rat dragsters in the Drag Racing Museum. Big Daddy Don Garlits is the Big Grand Daddy of Drag Racing. He has done a great deal for the sport both in speed and safety.
He has brought all but a couple of his famous Swap Rats into the museum as well as cars from many of his friends, competitors and others. The displays are not limited to the cars. There are trophies, memorabilia, racing engines, cut-a-way engines, and just about anything you can imagine right down to blown pistons!

If you are a real Don Garlits fan then you will also want to listen to the audio from a part of an interview with Big Daddy. It is fun!
