The chaos doesn’t stop there either. For this typical American drag meet has brought together a whole host of utterly barmy contraptions that can only very loosely be referred to as cars. With bodywork that only sometimes conceals an engine, and front wheels that often do little other than provide an (almost) solid base to stand on. Not that they’re needed particularly often, as the ungodly torque attempts to twist these bespoke dragsters inwards on themselves.
Another car that comes dangerously close to taking off is a Chevrolet 2, which picks up such a head of steam that its rear window is torn right from the frame. This is of course seen as a massive success by a clientele formed almost exclusively by people like us: absolute nutters.
If you love V8s so big they engulf the car they’re dropped into, with power so substantial the earth beneath them seems to melt, then these cars are bound to provide the perfect mid-afternoon respite.
