The Blue Max name originated in 1970 when owner Harry Schmidt was inspired by the German WWI aviation film of the same name, and then adopted the Blue Max name and logo for his Ford mustang funny car. The Blue Max quickly began to garner a reputation for speed, breaking records at tracks across the country.
