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.
