Watch this video. It isn't too good but sparks some questions? Engine? Drivetrain? Year? (late seventies?). Does anyone have some more info on this?

Olds Aerotech from the late 1980s. AJ Foyt set a closed course speed record with it in Texas in Aug 1987. The car used one of two heavily modified Quad 4 engines, one built by Batten and one built by Fueling. Yes, this was a promotional gimmick for the Q4. There were two rear bodies used on the car, one long tail and one short tail.
