This is one of two cars long stored in the Boiler Shop in Rockhill. For a time the car had donated its engie head to the Spider while that. 2006-2007 the car was disassembled and rebuilt. The original Spider head was repaired and installed on that car and this car received its head back. It received a red coat of paint and went into speeder ride servcie. It has a single syliner Fairmont engine and belt drive. It was named "Fairbanks" by the speeder crew because it once had a Fairbanks engine. This car is one if the fastest speeders at the EBT. The car was quickly placed in service providing speeder riedes. A spare MOW trailer was converted to run with this car as a passenger trailer, as there is no seating on the car as there is on the Spider and the Flying Devil.
