“After being discharged from the RAF, Frank Whittle relieved his boredom by tinkering with a recovered secret Messerschmitt prototype. In the process, he invented drag racing, the “rail”, the flame paint job, and [Michael May and Jim Hall notwithstanding] became the first to mount a wing on a groundbound vehicle.” — Paul Nieman
