Funny Car History
Excerpts from the Diamond P video "Fabulous Floppers". Narrated by the late
Steve Evans with NHRA Funny Car Champions Kenny Bernstein and Don "The
Drag Racing Nostalgia from American Nitro
Jungle Jim Liberman and an intense blend of flesh, fire, and burning
rubber. Filled with the hairiest crashes, flips, explosions, and fires
imaginable. It's a thrill a minute following the drivers, their gutsy sex
charged women and the awesome machines that attract them both.

spectacle that builds to a climactic showdown between drag racing legends
Don "The Snake" Prudhomme and Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen.

Before asking why is it funny please read this.The car is a Funny-Car. In
drag racing there are different classes of cars one of which is Funny-Car
so named because in the early days the cars were made from stock looking
cars but the rear wheels were moved forward which made them look "funny".
The term "funny car" was just away of describing the class these cars
compeated in, it has since become the official name for the class.

The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than
ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these
high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no
longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.
