Dragster deal sealed in Thunder Bay

People driving on the Harbour Expressway near Memorial were treated to the sight of a top fuel dragster this morning. Jim Fersch of Alberta came to Thunder Bay to meet a Quebec man halfway to buy the racer. He says he purchased it over the internet and arranged to meet the seller here to complete the transaction. Fersch says the 945 horsepower vehicle is worth 35 thousand dollars used and about 60 thousand new.
