DRAKA
Rebuilt after Fire 2002
The first car carrying the head, neck, and wings burned to the ground on May 14, 2002. The skin, neck, head and wing structures were cut off the old Ford Econoline box truck and welded onto a newer Dodge Tradesman. *Note damage to neck and blackened scales at back end, under the wing.
