Recently, the famed Bunny Burkett World Championship Winning Funny Car was removed and transported to Ultimate Garage to be repainted after being exposed to weather elements for 12 years. As of today, the body has been returned to MIR and has been placed back on top of the Hod Rodz Diner, just in time for Jet Wars!!

The restoration of this car was a group effort. Squires, along with assistance from Illusion Wraps and PPG, completed the painting of the body. The Burkett family restored many of the other elements of the car including the wheels, wheelie bars, and other parts of the car.
